Important dates for water share transfer and allocation trade applications

Final applications for Water Share transfers requiring Water Corporation approval must be lodged by Monday 18 June 2018 to ensure they can be processed by Friday 29 June.

The Water Registrar aims to record all water share transfers that are submitted in recordable form as-soon-as-possible. You are reminded that when a water share transfer is recorded, the seller's allocation account will no longer be linked to that water share. Unused water allocation can only be carried over to the next financial year if the allocation account is linked to an appropriate water share.

 If you are trading Allocation before the end of the financial year, please be aware of the following important dates:

  • Wednesday 27 June 2018 is the last day to submit paper-based allocation trade applications to your water corporation to be sure of having an application processed.

For customers in Northern Victoria

  • Online applications to trade allocation within Victoria, including applications made via the Broker Portal or API, may be submitted until 5pm AEST on Friday 29 June 2018 for instant approval. However, in some cases instant approval is not possible and these trades need to be submitted earlier as outlined below.
  • Any applications requiring manual processing by a Water Corporation must be submitted by Wednesday 27 June 2018.
  • Interstate trade applications require the approval of both states. South Australia have advised that applications must be received by Friday 15 June 2018 to guarantee processing before the end of the water year. All interstate allocation trades involving Victoria which are submitted online via the Broker Portal or the Broker API will be processed manually from 5pm AEST on Friday 15 June.
