IPv4 Transfer Fees

All IPv4 address transfers are subject to a transfer fee except for transfers that are a result of a merger, acquisition, takeover, or are governed by the historical resource transfer policy.

A 20% transfer fee is calculated using the sum of total IPv4 addresses that are being transferred in a single transfer request.

You can use the annual fee calculator to work out the 20% what the transfer fee will be.

For example, the transfer fee for a:

  • /24 is AUD 210 (20% of AUD 1,050)
  • /20 is AUD 614.60 (20% of AUD 3,073)
  • /16 is AUD 1,799.20 (20% of AUD 8,996)

Please note, this fee is invoiced when the transfer request is approved and must be paid before the transfer is completed.
