Recently the Ministry of Fisheries (MFish) authorised FishServe to accept payment of cost recovery levies by way of a direct debit authority. A direct debit will allow you to have your cost recovery levies deducted directly from your bank account on the 25th of every month.
Direct debit has several benefits, the most obvious being that you do not need to post a cheque to us every month. The greatest benefit however is the security that direct debit offers you by ensuring that your cost recovery levies are paid each month. This removes the possibility of incurring a penalty and/or suspension of your fishing permit.
If you would like to be set up for cost recovery levies direct debit and have not already received a form please contact the FishServe helpline on (04) 460 9555.
