Applying for a payment plan

A payment plan is available to any person (not a company) who is able to prove financial hardship.  A payment plan can be an instalment plan, or an extension of time to pay.

Instalment plan: The minimum amount accepted for an instalment plan depends on the total penalties accrued.  The total penalty amount for all infringements will need to be paid off via 26 fortnightly payments (within a 12 month period), and the repayment amount will be set to reflect this timeframe, with a minimum amount of not less than $20.00 per fortnight.

A payment plan under extreme financial hardship can be considered if a person is unable to meet the above requirements.  To be considered for a payment plan under extreme financial hardship, you must provide documentation with your application to prove your financial difficulties. In this case, the total penalty amount for all infringements will need to be paid off via 52 fortnightly payments (within a 24 month period), and the repayment amount will be set to reflect this timeframe, with a minimum amount of not less than $10.00 per fortnight.

When your payment plan is approved, your details will be referred to our recovery team who will accept instalment payments on our behalf. They will write to you outlining the payment plan details and conditions. 

A payment plan will be considered to be in default, and subsequently cancelled, if payment is not received within 14 days of the due date.  In this case, you must re-apply for a new payment plan or make payment of the remaining outstanding amount in full.  Payment plans will only be offered on 2 occasions.

A company will not be offered an instalment plan but may be offered an extension of time to pay.

Extension of time to pay: An extension of up to 8 weeks can be granted upon request.
