Annual licence fees

Fees are collected by Radio Spectrum Management (RSM) to recover the cost of providing services. The objective is to:

  1. Continually seek to improve efficiency in the administration of the Act
  2. Fully recover the costs associated with administering the Act
  3. Fairly allocate the costs in relation to work undertaken

Annual licence fees can be paid online in the Register of Radio Frequencies (the Register). Read more about how to pay for annual licence fees.

A manual payment fee of $25 will be added to any payment made by cash, cheque, or any other kind of payment other than an electronic payment or any payment by credit card.
