Fee adjustments – what fee do I pay?

The fee amount that you must pay for the filing of an application for the registration of a topography depends on the date on which the fee is received by the Registrar of Topographies, not the date on which the service was originally requested.

For all fees subject to an annual adjustment:

For example, if you file an application before January 1 but a filing date cannot be granted because the prescribed fee was not paid, the amount you need to pay will depend on the date on which the Registrar of Topographies receives the payment. If the payment is received after January 1, you will need to pay the adjusted fee for the new year.
