Offender levies

An offender levy is a fee that helps pay the cost of law enforcement and administration.

This levy is applied to any adult convicted of an offence in a supreme, district or magistrates court, whether or not the conviction is recorded.

You cannot appeal the levy, and we cannot waive or withdraw it.

You should pay the levy on the day it is applied in court. Otherwise, the court will register the levy with us and we will send you an enforcement order with instructions on how to pay.
