Queensland Civil and Administrative Tribunal will be progressively introducing an online forms facility, whereby parties are able to complete forms and documents online and submit them to the registry electronically. Available online forms can be accessed on the QCAT website.
The submitting party will receive an electronic sealed copy of the document filed and a confirmation letter with the filing date and application number to their nominated email address. Service copies can be printed from this electronic copy.
Parties must have the original of any documents filed electronically with them at any Tribunal proceeding.
See QCAT Practice Direction No 1 of 2016 for further information on the procedures for the completion and submission of forms online. Schedule A to this Practice Direction lists the applications, referrals or documents that may be filed electronically.
The By Lawyers QCAT Commentary has been updated to reflect this procedural change. As a reminder, the QCAT Guide is located within the Magistrates Court Publication.
