Fees and charges

Under the Meat Industry Act 1993, PrimeSafe has the function and power to fix and charge fees.

PrimeSafe follows the Department of Treasury and Finance’s guideline for setting fees and charges. PrimeSafe applies the same indexation of fees to those applicable to the remainder of the Government sector each year.

The annual fee for a meat transport vehicle licence depends on the vehicle type. All PrimeSafe fees are GST exempt therefore a tax invoice will not be provided following receipt of payment.
