How to Calculate Fees Payable

Determine if the client is eligible for any rebates or exemptions and adjust any calculations accordingly. See Vehicle Registration Concessions, Rebates & Exemptions.

2. Registration Fee (plus Fire Levy)

• \$66.20+ \$16.00 = \$82.20 normal rate
• \$34.55+ \$11.00 = \$45.55 pensioner rate;

• \$25.00 normal rate
• \$15.00 pensioner rate

4. Motor Tax
Determine the number of seats (excluding the driver) then the Motor Tax,  (See Scales & Rates Of Motor Tax for Buses)

6. Inspection Fees for Registration
Include the Vehicle Inspection Fee if the vehicle has been inspected by other than an Approved Inspection Station. See Vehicle Inspection Fees

7. Registration Plate Fee
Include the Registration Plate Fee for new registrations or if the vehicle is to be re-registered. Standard plates are \$19.40. (If retaining existing number plates then no plate fee will be applicable).
