Building Fees and Charges

Building Fees and Charges

Western Australia’s Building Commission oversees the regulation of building, painting, building surveying and plumbing services. With all these regulatory functions focused within a single agency, our industry and consumers benefit from a more consistent and efficient service.

The Building Services Board has been established within the Commission to register builders, painters and building surveyors, and the Plumbers Licensing Board licenses plumbers.

The Building Commission determines the fees and charges relating to building approvals within the state.

Construction Training Fund Levy

Works over $20,000 require payment of Construction Training fund levy. The rate of the levy is 0.2% of the total value of construction (inclusive of GST) or $200 in every $100,000 worth of project value. Applicants will need register to pay the fee online via this link 

The Shire will need to see a copy of the receipt as part of the building permit application.
