When you apply for a security licence, or renew your existing licence, you can choose to have a one year or a five year licence.
There are also fees associated with other aspects of security licensing, including add or deleting subclasses, replacing your Master licence certificate, changing your business or trading name or modifying the nominated person or close associates of the Master licence.
A $120 nonrefundable processing fee is included in the application fee. If you choose to withdraw your application this fee cannot be refunded.
If your application is refused, a refund of your application payment, minus the processing fee, will be provided once the appeal period is completed. Refunds can take up to six weeks to process from the date of refusal.
