Annual fee for gaming-related licences

Every holder of a NSW gaming-related licence is required to pay an annual licence fee.

The gaming-related licence fee system ensures that those involved in manufacturing, selling, servicing or testing gaming machines in NSW make a fair and reasonable contribution to the cost of regulating the industry.

Due to the introduction of an annual Consumer Price Index (CPI) increase for gaming-related annual licence fees, the payment due date for fees is now 15 April 2021.

A renewal invoice will be emailed to you in late February2021, which will contain your licence number and renewal number, with payment due by 15 April 2021.

Note: we no longer accept cash or cheques
