HRA Clearance Fee charges for 2017-2018

28 June 2017

The Executive of HRA yesterday reviewed and approved the various Fees charged by Harness Racing Australia (HRA) for 2017-18.

Among these are the Clearance Registration Fees for horses imported to Australia, which will remain unchanged from 2016-17.

However, there has been a change in conditions for Australian bred horses who are returning to Australia permanently after being named and or having race debut overseas.  Currently these horses would be subject to the full Clearance Registration Fee (depending on sex), however, the new criteria for these horses, which take effect 1 July 2017, will peg the Clearance Registration Fee to that of the Short Term Fee - $561.00 for 2017-18.

The full Clearance Registration Fee schedule as of 1 July 2017 is:


(inc GST)

Horse & Gelding


4YO & Under Filly/Mare


5YO & Over Mare


Australian Bred Horse *


Short Term Fee - Less than 90 days


  * bred in Australia and returning permanently after being named and or having race debut overseas.
