Attorney-General Accepts VLSB PC Fees Recommendations

Attorney-General Accepts VLSB PC Fees Recommendations

By LIV Media

Practising Certificate Uniform Laws 


In a Notice of Decision gazetted on 25 January 2018, the Attorney-General has accepted the recommendations of the Victorian Legal Services Board (VSLB) in its Regulatory Impact Statement (RIS) for the proposed Legal Profession Uniform Law Application (Practising Certificate Fees) Regulations 2018 (the Regulations).

The Regulations will commence on 1 March 2018. They will set new fee units for practising certificates issued for the 2018-19 Financial Year and the following nine Financial Years.

The new fee units for practising certificates are as follows:

  • 43.04 fee units for principals with trust account authorisation;
  • 30.03 fee units for principals without trust account authorisation;
  • 28.06 fee units for employees;
  • 24.33 fee units for barristers;
  • 16.88 fee units for corporate practitioners; and
  • 15.47 fee units for government practitioners and community sector practitioners.

The value for a fee unit for the 2018-19 Financial Year has not yet been fixed. The LIV will provide further updates when the Regulations are published and when the Treasurer determines the fee unit value for the upcoming Financial Year.

Under transitional arrangements, current fees for practising certificates granted for the 2017-18 year will continue to be charged from 1 March 2018 until 30 June 2018.

The LIV has made multiple submissions throughout the course of the VLSB’s consultation process. News in relation to practising certificate fees, LIV submissions and resources are available through the dedicated LIV PC fee increase webpages.
