Pricing and Offers

How does pricing work?

Paying for a NABERS rating has two parts, the NABERS lodgement fee and the Assessor's fee.

All NABERS ratings are subject to lodgement fees, payable to the NSW Government. These are set fees regardless of your sector or size of building.  You can find the lodgement fees here.

In order to understand the full cost associated with a NABERS rating, you also need to contact a NABERS accredited Assessor to get a quote for a site visit to verify the data for your building.  Assessors will set individual fees based on their own costs and business practices. Find our list of accredited Assessors here.

For more information on steps to get a rating, refer to the fact sheet for your sector.

NABERS also provides additional products and services, such as data requests, training courses and Assessor accreditation. Please refer to the price list for more details.
