How fees and charges are applied

Find out how our hourly rates are applied for providing services and activities in the maritime sector.

Hourly rates

  • Rates are effective from 1 July 2017 to 30 June 2019.
  • All charges are in New Zealand currency and include goods and services tax (GST).

Depending on the service that is being provided, the charges are made up of either:

  • a one off initial fixed fee only
  • a cost based on both a fixed fee and hourly rates
  • a cost based on hourly rates only.

The difference in hourly rates

The hourly charges differ according to whether the work or service is done office-based, or performed at an off-site location.

For off-site work and services, the cost differs according to whether the off-site visit is the first visit in relation to the particular work or service, or a follow-up visit.

For a first visit, a higher hourly rate applies, but no costs associated with the visit (such as accommodation, fares, and meals) are payable. For a subsequent visit in relation to the same matter, a lower hourly rate is payable, plus an hourly rate for time spent travelling, and any actual and reasonable costs incurred.

The hourly charge for office-based services provided by MNZ for the purposes of Maritime Rule Parts 19 and 44 is:

  • $218 (GST incl ) for 2017/18.

The hourly charge applicable to services provided by MNZ at an off-site location and office-based activity directly associated with the off-site visit for the purposes of Maritime Rule Parts 19 and 44 is:

  • $291 (GST incl) for 2017/18.
