Changes to plumbing fees
Tuesday, 24 June 2014
New plumbing fees will take effect on 1 July 2014, with the annual increase reflecting the Treasurer’s increase rate of 3.15 percent.
The way the fees are set will also change. Currently, fees are shown as a monetary amount. Under new amendments, the fees will be listed as a number of ‘fee units’.
For example, the plumbing licence fee in 2013-14 is shown as $274.47. However, in 2014-15, the fee will be displayed as 21.37 units. The value of the fee unit is $13.24. This means the new fee will be $282.94.
This will eliminate the current need to amend regulations each year to provide for fee increases. Instead, the fees will be automatically indexed on 1 July each year in accordance with the Treasurer’s annual rate.
