In NSW, its only fully customised plates that are billed on a yearly basis. I.E. "1SIKWRX" is a yearly billed plate, while AXR-850 ( in black / yellow ) is fine.
We also have the slimline in a variety of formats, which again, as long as you stay within the normal format, doesn't attract the yearly charge. . . . ( I personally run black on white slimlines in the AB-123 format ).
White on Black "Personal Plates" ( with your initials etc ), are also a one off fee. . .
There are still heaps of options for interesting plates that don't cost much, as long as your creative :)
