Pay your fine through Centrepay

You may be able to pay in fortnightly instalments, deducted automatically from your Centrelink payments through Centrepay.

If you are having trouble paying your fine as a lump sum, but you can afford smaller instalments, you can ask to pay as an automatic deduction to your Centrelink benefit. If you were receiving a Centrelink benefit at the time of the fine, you can also ask for a 50% discount on some fines.

When should you do this?
  • If you do not dispute the fine
  • You are on a Centrelink benefit and 
  • You cannot afford to pay your fine as a lump sum but can pay in smaller instalments


Do not do this if:

  • You want to dispute the fine

Be quick

If you don’t deal with the fine before the due date, additional fees can be added or your licence can be suspended.

Stick to your plan

If the Centrepay arrangement is in place for the penalty period or for longer, you need to stick to it. If you don’t pay on time there may be more penalties, including enforcement action and extra costs.

How to apply

Go to the Revenue NSW website

If your fine is overdue you can apply online through the Revenue NSW website to set up your Centrepay

Contact Revenue NSW by phone

They will set up the payment plan for you over the phone

How it works

Contact Revenue NSW

You contact Revenue NSW, by telephone or online, and tell them your CRN and an amount you can afford to pay each fortnight.

Wait for approval

If your Centrepay arrangement is approved, an amount will be deducted from your fortnightly Centrelink benefit until the fine is paid in full. No enforcement action will be taken against you while you are paying your fine through Centrepay.
