ACMA offers help for bushfire-affected licence holders

The ACMA is offering various forms of assistance for those in bushfire-affected areas who have licence renewals coming up.

Where licensees are unable to pay their licence renewals by the due date because they didn’t receive their renewal notice(s) or are facing financial hardship, the ACMA will extend the time period for payment of fees for three months past the normal renewal dates.

The ACMA can also help with identifying licence numbers, updating licensee details, and printing and sending hard copies of licences.

The agency has also undertaken to contact licensees to check they still need their licence(s) prior to expiration, before taking any action to cancel them.

You can contact the ACMA to talk about any of these options.

The assistance offers apply to those who live in any of the postcodes listed on the ATO’s website.
