Australian agents and developers may choose to absorb the AU$1500 application fee being lodged at foreign property investors, indicates the Domain Review (16 February 2015). "A developer who covers the cost of the fee should win within the pool of offshore buyers who are still willing to invest here. It can be a competitive advantage against other developers who don’t cover the fee," said Andrew Taylor, Co-CEO of Juwai. The fee is intended to boost the Foreign Investment Review Board’s (FIRB) enforcement of law and provide transparency in the level of foreign property investment, but whether it will have the intended impact is still yet to be seen.
