Important dates for allocation trade applications 

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

  • 27 June 2016 is the last day to submit paper-based allocation trade applications to your water corporation to be sure of having an application processed. Water Corporations will attempt to finalise applications submitted later than that, but cannot guarantee it.
  • Online applications to trade allocation within Victoria, including applications made via the Broker Portal or API, may be submitted until 5pm AEST on Thursday 30 June 2016 for instant approval. However, in some cases instant approval is not possible and these trades need to be submitted earlier as outlined below.
  • For all Victorian trades subject to the Barmah Choke trade limit, and any other applications referred for manual processing by the Water Corporations, you must submit by 27 June 2016 to be sure of having an application processed.
  • Interstate trade applications require the approval of both states. South Australia have advised that applications need to be received by 17 June 2016 to be sure of processing before the end of the year. Interstate allocation trades submitted online via the Broker Portal or the Broker API will be processed manually from 5pm AEST on 17 June.
