For example: if a function or event runs for 2 days and the maximum number of persons expected to be present in the licensed/permit area at any one time is 300, then the fee will be calculated on an attendance of 600 people in total and will be $229.00.

If a trustee is being appointed for a club or club restricted licence the $150.00 fee applies for the trustee.
