The Minister for Communications announced the outcome of the Radio Spectrum Fees Framework review on 11 April.
The changes announced included that the number of fee categories will be reduced to four, including a new standard fee category for most licences, set at $150 (annually, including GST). The online payment discount and the licence interference investigation discount will be discontinued and a manual payment fee of $25 established.
These changes will take effect in late 2017. Radio Spectrum Management (RSM) will announce the date of the changes via the RSM website and the Business Update e-newsletter. The announcement will include more detail about implementation and how the changes affect your licences.
