Pay for a new licence

You need to pay for a new radio or spectrum licence before it can be granted or registered.

About paying a new licence fee

A planned non-engineered radio licence application can be paid for as soon as submitted.

For an engineered radio or spectrum licence application, you will receive an email requesting payment for the planned licence. There will also be a link on the ‘My Dashboard’ screen to the application to pay for the client (or ARE’s if they have authority).

To make a payment for a new radio or spectrum licence application you must display the planned licence application in the ‘Licence Summary’ screen.

  • A radio licence will become current on the Register as soon as the fee has been paid.
  • A spectrum licence will become current on the Register after the fee has been paid then approved by the Registrar.

Note: If you exited the ‘Licence Summary’ screen and fees are due, you can open the application and pay the fees from your ‘My Dashboard’.
