I am seeking to clarify where documents can be filed and methods documents can be accepted for our common documents.
All IRC documents can be filed at any NSW Local Court (Central Local Court exempt), if you are filing at Downing Centre please file documents at the civil registry.
The locations of NSW Local Courts can be found at: http://www.localcourt.justice.nsw.gov.au/Pages/contact_us/court_locations/court_locations.aspx
