Annual fee and insurance check

Every 12 months, building surveyors in Victoria must pay an annual fee and provide proof of the required insurance to be able to continue working.

The VBA will send you an annual fee and insurance form (previously known as the annual renewal form) six weeks before the due date.

Find out about current fees in the Fees section.

When you receive the notice, complete the following steps:

Step 1 – Pay the fee

Choose how to pay the fee specified in the notice. You can pay by:

  • credit card – please complete the credit card details on your annual notice
  • cheque or money order – please attach to your renewal notice.

Step 2 – Prove your insurance cover

Attach a copy of your renewed insurance, if necessary.

We recommend that you contact your insurance provider as soon as you receive your annual notice.

Step 3 – Check your details

Check that your personal details are correct, and update if necessary.

Step 4 – Return the notice

Return the notice before your current registration is suspended (the notice specifies the date).

If we do not receive your annual notice by the due date, your registration will be suspended immediately and you may be subject to disciplinary action.

For more information about immediate suspensions, visit Immediate suspension.

The annual fee and insurance process can take up to 10 working days, so please allow enough time for us to receive your notice before your current registration expires.
