Complying with Commercial Activity Permit conditions
If you have been issued with a Commercial Activity Permit (CAP), you must comply with the conditions required by your permit.
All CAP holders are required to submit a return of operations on a regular basis, which will be specified by the information notice sent with your permit.
Your permit conditions may require you to notify Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service (QPWS) staff before you visit a national park, forest or recreation area. This is not a condition of all types of CAPs, so check your permit conditions to see if this is a requirement.
Return of operations
You must submit a return of operations within 20 business days of the end of each prescribed period.
You can find these details in the schedules section of the information notice you were sent with your permit.
- Submit a return of operations form for July 2019 to June 2020
- Submit a return of operations form for July 2018 to June 2019
When completing your return of operations, you can choose to:
- pay fees online
- if an account has been set up and you have been issued a Financial Reference Number, you can select to have an invoice forwarded to your registered email address.
Fees must be paid by the due date listed on the invoice. If you fail to pay fees by the due date, QPWS may suspend or cancel your permit.
Submitting a notification
Some CAPs require the holder to notify regional QPWS staff before a visit. This does not apply to all permits, so check your permit conditions to see if this is a requirement.
