Annual statement and fees - motor car traders

Skip listen and sharing tools


You must lodge an annual statement with the Business Licensing Authority (BLA) via myCAV and pay an annual licence fee within the six weeks leading up to the anniversary of the date you were granted your licence.  

The BLA will notify you via myCAV that your annual statement is due approximately six weeks before your licence anniversary date. It is your responsibility to inform the BLA if you do not receive this notification. 

You must be the individual sole trader, a partner of the partnership, or a director of the company licensee to lodge the annual statement and fee. No other person can submit the annual statement on your behalf.  

Important note: You must use our online myCAV system to submit your annual statement and pay the prescribed fee.
To start using myCAV, you must create your own myCAV account using a personal email address to verify your identity (or log into your existing account, if you already have one).For more information about using myCAV, view About myCAV.

You are responsible for lodging an annual statement and paying the fee when required. If you do not receive this notice, call the BLA on 1300 135 452 or using the BLA enquiry form

Late notice

If you do not lodge your annual statement and pay your prescribed fee by the due date, the BLA will send you a late notice via myCAV and you will be liable to pay a late fee.  

If, after 21 days, the BLA still has not received your annual statement and fee, your licence will be automatically cancelled.

For more information, view our Surrender or cancellation of licence - motor car traders page. 


The annual fee and late lodgement fee are set out on Fees and forms – motor car traders.
