Radio Spectrum Management (RSM) collects annual fees for licences to recover the costs associated with administering the Radiocommunications Act 1989.

In addition, spectrum licences may require payment of a separate resource fee. This is dependent on the policy criteria under which a licence can be offered.

There are two situations when paying annual licence fees:

  • New licences - these fees are for new licences not yet granted/registered
  • Licence renewal - these fees are payable each year to renew your current licence(s)

Note: Before a radio or spectrum licence can be granted or registered, the licence holder must pay in full the annual fee associated with their licence(s).
