Financial capacity

The Building Services (Registration) Act 2011 requires the Building Services Board (the Board) to be satisfied that a building service contractor in their class of registration continues to meets the prescribed financial requirements.

All contractors must answer questions about their financial capacity. Building and building surveying contractors must also provide supporting documents as detailed on the application forms as evidence of financial capacity.

Fees and payments

Payment of the fee must accompany the renewal form. Fees can be paid by post or in person. Acceptable payment methods are cheque, money order, credit card, cash or EFTPOS. Please note that online payment is NOT available for renewal fees. Details of the current fees can be found here.

Late applications

Late applications may be lodged within six months after the expiry date of a registration but you must first write a letter giving reasons for the delay. You can use the late application form for this purpose. If the Board accepts your reasons, you are then required to complete a renewal application form and pay the required fee.

If the Board does not accept your reasons, you may not apply to renew your registration, but you may apply for a new registration. The board has particular forms to assist applicants applying for a new registration within three years of a former registration expiry date.

It is recommended that you lodge your renewal application before your registration expires to avoid the inconvenience of a late application or a new registration. If you have difficulty submitting your complete renewal application on time, please submit an incomplete renewal application before the expiry date. Contact the Licensing area for further assistance on 1300 489 099.

For more information, please refer to the Board's policy on late applications (renewals).
