GST Rate Increase and New Fees

From 1 October 2010 GST will increase from 12.5% to 15%. As a result, the fees and levies charged by FishServe and the Ministry of Fisheries may change from that date. Some fees will not be going up, but others will increase to reflect the increase in GST.

At the same time, the annual adjustment of fees will result in some changes in fees charged.

The new fees and GST rates will apply to all transactions processed from 1 October 2010.

A list of the new rates (Incl GST) is available below.
