Plumbing fees

Jobseeker

Due to coronavirus (COVID-19) restrictions, if you are lodging an application for registration, completing your annual fee and insurance process or lodging an application to renew your registration, you may be exempt from paying if you qualify for Jobseeker payment.

The exemption applies to fees payable on and from 30 September 2020 to 30 June 2021. Building practitioners that have already been sent notices may still be eligible for the exemption if the relevant fee is payable on and from 30 September 2020.

Evidence must be current within the fortnight before the request for fee exemption is received by the VBA.

  • A bank statement that indicates Jobseeker payments have been deposited into the account of the applicant or practitioner; or
  • A letter from Centrelink outlining the applicant or practitioner is receiving Jobseeker payments. The letter must display a date.

Once the VBA is satisfied that you are eligible, we will contact you via email to confirm that the relevant fee is exempt on this occasion.
