Proposed new fee structure for second-hand dealers and pawnbrokers

Skip listen and sharing tools

The Victorian Government is proposing new fees for second-hand dealers and pawnbrokers. This is to keep pace with the growing costs of administering second-hand dealer and pawnbroker laws and regulations. This includes the costs of running the registration scheme.

Annual renewal fees for second-hand dealers and pawnbrokers in Victoria will still be lower than in any other state or territory that charges registration fees.
