The Fines Enforcement and Recovery Unit manages new and overdue fines and debts issued by agencies across South Australia.
This includes but is not limited to the recovery of:
- parking and traffic fines
- court fines
- state debt owed to government agencies
- victims of crime and criminal injury compensation amounts.
Our office does not issue fines or state debt invoices, but provides a service to various South Australian agencies in the recovery and enforcement of debts owed to them, including fines and state debts. This includes the police, government agencies, statutory authorities and councils.
Established on 3 February 2014, our office took on the management of functions previously managed by the Fines Payment Unit of the Courts Administration Authority.
Our office is part of the Department of Treasury and Finance and operates under the Fines Enforcement and Debt Recovery Act 2017.
