Whether you are planning to pay the growth areas infrastructure contribution (GAIC) in full or under an approved staged payment arrangement, you must contact us so that we can calculate the amount you need to pay, including applicable interest.

  1. Contact us before you pay

    If your GAIC liability has been deferred or is payable under an approved staged payment arrangement, your payment could be subject to interest calculated on a daily basis. A staged payment arrangement, inclusive of interest, can be determined using our GAIC staged payment interest calculator.

    Before you contact us, make sure you have the details of the property, including the address and title references, details of the owner, any notice of staged payment approval, or the GAIC certificate ready.

    You can call us on 13 21 61 and speak to one of our GAIC experts or contact us online.

  2. Pay your GAIC

    You can pay by electronic funds transfer (EFT) using the details of your calculated GAIC payment:

    BSB: 033 222
    Account: 170 444
    Account name: State Revenue Office

    Add your name and 'GAIC' as a payment reference to help us match your payment to the liability.

    Staged payments

    You can pay your staged payment and interest using the details above. In addition, provide the following as a reference:

    • The Notice Number, located on the top right corner of the GAIC Notice of Approval of Staged Payment Arrangement.
    • This Notice Number is the format SPA xx/xxxx(x)
  3. Confirm your EFT payment

    After making your EFT payment, you must email the following information to us so we can track your payment:

    • Your name.
    • Details of the GAIC affected property, including:
      • name of the owner,
      • address and title references.
    • EFT payment confirmation number.
    • Date of payment.
    • Amount paid.
    • Copy of your notice of staged payment approval, if applicable.

Next Steps

If your payment satisfies the GAIC liability in full, please request a certificate of release and a notice enabling the removal of the GAIC recording on the land.

If your payment satisfies the payment for an approved stage, please request a certificate of partial release and a notice.

Please ensure that you attach a copy of any associated plan of subdivision, staged payment arrangement or other relevant documentation. 

The certificate confirms that a GAIC liability has been paid in accordance with an approved staged payment arrangement, including any applicable interest for a stage. The notice enables the registration of a staged subdivision of land and the removal of a GAIC recording for that stage only.

If you do not pay the GAIC, including a staged payment, by the due date penalties will apply.
