All Daily Fees in GTA Online (2022), Breakdown of Property & Mechanic Charges

On this guide you find a breakdown of all the daily fees that can be charged in GTA Online for each of the propeties that you can own, now updated to 2022 after the changes made with The Contract DLC.

Depending on which properties you own, how many you have, and what upgrades you applied, your personal daily fees in GTA Online can very widely. This guide will help you figure out exactly how much you're paying for and why.

In previous years, the daily fees in GTA Online used to be a lot more expensive. But now, after The Contract Update release in December 2021, the daily charges have been significantly reduced, the majority of the fees were halved, and some are now even less than that. The guide shows both the old fees (before 2021) and the new, current fees (from 2022 onwards).

At the end of the list, we also have some best practices followed by veteran players to avoid losing a lot of money while paying the daily fees in GTA Online.

What are Daily Fees in GTA Online?

Daily Maintenance Fees are charges that are deducted automatically in GTA Online each in-game day, for services provided by the properties a player owns. Every garage you own (even if it’s empty) can be serviced by the Mechanic that will bring vehicles to you and repair them for free once you store them or call for a delivery.

Each property you own has fees based on its service and/or its staff. Those fees vary based on upgrades or options. Owning a significant number of properties, especially MC Businesses, can accrue a hefty sum.

Some fees are charged no matter what you’re doing. Some, such as the one for the Bunker and MC Businesses, are only charged if you are registered as a CEO or MC President.

When are Daily Fees charged?

The GTA Online fees are charged every 48 minutes (one in-game day) that you are in the same lobby.

Fees that are exclusive to being a CEO or MC President won’t be charged if you aren’t registered as either a CEO or MC President - but will be charged immediately if you register as one if you have been in the same lobby for 48 minutes or longer.

All of the fees are listed as "Spent on property and utilities" in the Maze Bank transaction log. After The Contract DLC in December 2021, the daily fees notifications are now grouped in 3 categories: Properties, Businesses and Mechanic.

So here we go with the list of all the Daily Fees in GTA Online, including costs for all the properties and their respective upgrades:

Maximum Total Daily Fees Charged in GTA Online

If you own every property and business and you've applied all the upgrades (plus you're registered as CEO and MC President), the total Daily Fees in GTA Online can reach a big sum.

The total amount of daily fees charged every in-game day in GTA Online used to reach over $50,000, but now, after reduction of The Contract Update, can only reach about $24,000.

However, if you still want to avoid paying the daily fees, let's look a few tips and tricks that can help you out.

How to avoid Daily Fees in GTA Online?

Can you avoid paying for the Daily Fees in GTA Online? The answer is yes, it is possible to avoid them.

The simplest method, even if inconvenient, is to change lobbies before 48 minutes have elapsed. If you enter a new lobby, that unseen timer is reset.

If you don’t want to change lobbies, you can unregister as a CEO or MC President and at least not be charged those specific fees - but you will still pay the regular ones every 48 minutes.

Another method is to be in a mission, race, or other non-freeroam activity, as the timer does not apply there.

Avoiding Daily Fees while AFK

If you use methods to be in the game, but inactive, in order to let passive-income businesses accrue value, there are some methods (using security monitors) that keep you in the lobby that are still subject to fees.

For short-terms, or if the fees you are subject to are small or relatively insignificant, this is fine and more convenient. But for longer periods of time the accrued fees can exceed the value your businesses are earning.

Instead, using the Security Cameras inside your Bunker or other business can let you stay AFK as long as you want, while not paying any fees during that time; with a bonus of the mission’s reward money upon completion at the end.

And this is everything you need to know about Daily Fees in GTA Online! Let us know what you think about the daily expenses and if you have any additional tips to share.
