Notarial service fees to increase from 1 January 2017
Notarial service fees will increase from 1 January 2017, following a recommendation from the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade's Functional and Efficiency Review.
Notarial service fees have not increased in 16 years.
The new fee schedule takes into account the annual rate of inflation in Australia since fees were last increased, the growing cost of delivering notarial services and rising demand. The new fee schedule aligns with notarial service fees charged by commercial providers.
From 2018 onwards, notarial service fees will increase annually in line with the Consumer Price Index published by the Australian Bureau of Statistics.
For some services there are free alternatives available to clients, such as witnessing of documents by medical practitioners or police officers.
