Renew your licence

To keep your radio and spectrum licences current, you need to renew them every year.

About renewing your licence

Radio and spectrum licences are due for renewal on the anniversary month, as shown on the ‘Licence Summary’ screen in the Register of Radio Frequencies (RRF). For help with finding this, go to Search licences.

We send a notification to your email address when your licences are due for payment. Make sure you keep this up-to-date. For help with this, go to Update your client record.

When logged into the RRF, the ‘My Dashboard’ screen displays. When you have activities what require attention, the Alert section displays. This section will only display when the following activities require attention:

  • Pay fees (Renewals) button to pay licence renewal fees. You can pay one, some, or all licence applications currently due.
  • Pay Invoice button to pay a manual invoice generated for the client from the QuickPay portal.
    Refer to Pay an invoice due
