ASQA NEWS: Invoicing update—annual fees reminder

ASQA annual fees will be invoiced on 1 July 2015.

Annual fees are based on your scope of registration as at close of business on 30 June 2015. ASQA’s fee schedule includes information about how fees are calculated.

Please ensure your RTO and CRICOS registration details are up to date on ASQAnet (and PRISMS for CRICOS providers) before 30 June.

The annual fee arrangements that apply to you will depend on which of the following describes your registration:

  • Your initial registration was approved by ASQA
  • You transitioned to ASQA from a state or territory regulator as part of the transition to national regulation
  • You have transferred to ASQA from Victoria or Western Australia since 1 July 2011 as a result of changing your operating jurisdiction.

Annual fees—if your initial registration application was approved by ASQA

All providers whose application for initial registration was approved by ASQA will be invoiced for annual registration fees on or shortly after 1 July 2015. You will receive an invoice for ASQA annual RTO registration fees covering the period 1 July 2015 – 30 June 2016.

This is in addition to any pro rata annual fees you may have paid for the period leading up to 30 June 2015.

If the registration period approved by your former regulator expires after 1 July 2015

If the registration period approved by your former regulator expires after 1 July 2015, you remain subject to legacy fee arrangements on 1 July 2015. These legacy fee arrangements apply until the registration period approved by your former regulator ends. This means you will not be invoiced for ASQA annual fees on 1 July 2015.

If the registration period approved by your former regulator has expired or will expire before 1 July 2015

You will be invoiced by ASQA on, or shortly after, 1 July 2015, for ASQA annual RTO registration fees covering the period 1 July 2015 – 30 June 2016. For ex-VETAB providers, this will be in addition to any legacy annual fees charged to you covering the period up to 31 December 2015.

If you have transferred to ASQA from Victoria or Western Australia since 1 July 2011

Legacy fee arrangements do not apply to providers that transferred to ASQA after 1 July 2011 as a result of a change in their delivery jurisdiction, that is, those providers who transferred to ASQA because:

  • they decided to offer or intend to offer courses in states/territories other than Victoria or Western Australia, or
  • they decided to offer or intend to offer courses to overseas students.

You will be invoiced by ASQA on, or shortly after, 1 July 2015 for ASQA annual registration fees covering the period 1 July 2015 – 30 June 2016. This will be in addition to any pro rata fees charged to you covering the period up to 30 June 2015.

The arrangements that will apply to you are outlined in detail in Annual RTO registration fees and Annual CRICOS registration fees.

VET and CRICOS fees

ASQA annual fee invoices for Commonwealth Register of Institutions and Courses for Overseas Students (CRICOS) providers are issued separately to invoices for annual RTO registration.

Payment information

Annual fees are due and payable within 30 days of the invoice being issued, unless ASQA explicitly states otherwise.
