New Notarial Service Fees from 1 January 2017
Notarial service fees will increase from 1 January 2017 following a recommendation from the Dep't of Foreign Affairs and Trade's Functional and Efficiency Review.
Notarial service fees have not increased in 16 years.
The new fee 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.
From 1 January 2017 fees for Statutory Declarations, witnessing signatures and certifying documents will increase to AUD 70. Apostille Stamp fees will increase to AUD 80. Fees to be paid in NIS by credit card, cash or cheque.
