From 1 July 2015 most fees and charges for services provided by NSW Fair Trading, including those for licensing, have changed to reflect the rise in the Consumer Price Index (CPI). These adjustments are in line with the system of annual CPI based adjustments to Fair Trading's fees and charges introduced in 2000.

The annual review system for fees enables businesses and consumers to plan for small, regular price increases, rather than be faced with irregular 'jumps' in costs.

The fees charged by NSW Fair Trading assist us to deliver a high standard of services to our customers.

An increasing number of licence renewal services provided by Fair Trading are available online. Licensing transactions made online attract a 10% discount to the processing component of the fee or $5, whichever is greater.

Where Fair Trading refuses an application, it has already incurred the cost of processing that application. The Licensing and Registration (Uniform Procedures) Act 2002 allows Fair Trading to keep the processing fee to cover some of its costs and refund the balance of the total fee when the application is refused.
