About our administrative fees

Our administrative fees are part of legislated tribunal operations as per ss229 and 230 of the Queensland Civil and Administrative Tribunal Act 2009.

They cover the registries’ time and expertise spent locating the requested file or searching our register, inspecting the file to ensure it is a complete record and to reduce parties’ risk associated with non-publication orders, making an inspection appointment and providing a room and expert advice on the day. If you have any questions about the fees, please contact us.
