Prescribed Offences, Infringement Notices and Prosecutions

The fines system in Victoria offers the option to pay a fixed penalty when a building offence is committed rather than going to court.

In some cases, you will be issued with a penalty in the form of an infringement notice (a fine) for offences. Depending on the offence, you may receive a fine on the spot, or in the post.

If you don't deal with your fine by the due date, the matter will become more serious and additional fees or costs may be added.
