The Attorney-General’s department has let us know that they are starting to send out those $0 annual celebrant charge invoices today. Make sure you pay that $0 quickly otherwise you’ll be in $0 debt, and the interest on that will be expensive.
Here’s what they’ve told us:
The celebrant registration charge notices are being sent out to celebrants today. As you are all aware the charge has been set to $0 for 2020-21. We are required to send the notice in accordance with the Marriage Act. Celebrants are not required to take any further action in relation to the notice and will remain registered for 2020-21. The value of the charge will be re-assessed for the 2021-22 financial year.
