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.


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.

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 when you contact us.

You can call us on 13 21 61 and speak to one of our GAIC experts, or email us at with these details.


Pay your GAIC

You can pay be EFT using the details of your calculated GAIC payment:

BSB: 033 222
Account: 170 444 

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



Confirm your EFT payment

After making your EFT payment, you must notify us by emailing with the following information 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

We will notify you in writing when your payment is received.

Next steps

If your payment satisfies the GAIC liability in full, we issue 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, we issue a certificate of partial release and a notice. 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.

Note: If you fail to pay the GAIC, including a staged payment, by the due date penalties will apply.
