Fees and Penalties under the Monetary Units Act 2004
Monetary Units Act 2004
Victorian Government departments and agencies charge a range of fees for services and regulatory purposes, including licensing and registering certain activities, and fines for improper conduct, and to discourage unlawful behaviour. These fees and fines are officially set and revised by legislation relevant to their application.
The government has a policy of automatically indexing certain fees and fines each year for inflation so that their value is maintained. To view a list of the automatically indexed fees and fines which are the responsibility of the Department of Environment and Primary Industries and which contribute to the Victorian Government's consolidated revenue, please see the Fees and Penalties below.
These lists are provided as a general guide only - please refer to our Disclaimer. Although we have sought to make the lists as accurate and complete as possible, updates and revisions may be necessary. These lists are also not intended as a guide to specific fees and fines. For information about the operation or payment of specific fees or fines, please contact us.
