Building permit levy calculator

In order to fund the Building Control, the Domestic Dispute Resolution System and – for certain permits – cladding rectification works, the Building Act 1993 (the Act) imposes a building permit levy in Victoria.

Use our building permit levy calculator to estimate the levy amount payable.

We suggest using website browser Google Chrome with the calculator.



Note: The building permit levy is not payable if the cost of building work is $10,000 or less.
Any BPN application submitted in the Building Activity Management System (BAMS) on or after the commencement date will only have a cladding levy calculated if the Building Permit Application Date is also equal to or later than the commencement date.
