Fees for a single animal activity application

The fees below apply if you are carrying out one animal activity. The fees are different for multiple animal activities (e.g. providing home boarding for dogs and breeding dogs) and for franchise operators and accommodation arrangers

The licence fee is split into two separate parts, both of which are non-refundable: 

  1. The application fee which is paid when you submit an application. This fee covers the costs associated with determining the application to the point that it is ready to issue.
  2. The issue fee which is paid after your inspection. This fee covers the cost of issuing the licence and the follow up inspection.
