Annual Returns and Fees

As the holder of an environmental authority, you will be required to pay an ongoing annual fee for your environmental authority and be required to submit an annual return.
Your first annual fee is due 20 business days after your environmental authority takes effect.

Following your first annual fee, prior to the due date for both the annual fee and the annual return, Council will issue you with a notice outlining these requirements. This notice will be sent at least 20 business days before the anniversary day for the environmental authority (i.e. the day your environmental authority took effect), and this notice will include details on where to pay your fees.
If you do not pay the annual fee by the due date, you will incur a fee for late payment.
