Personal care businesses
Personal Care/Body Art businesses provide services such as hairdressing, beauty, tattooing, ear-piercing and colonic irrigation.
These businesses, and any others involving penetration of the skin, must be registered with Council and comply with certain regulations to prevent the spread of infectious diseases.
Businesses must renew their registration and pay a renewal fee annually. Registrations expire on 31 December each year. Council sends a renewal application in November each year so that businesses can renew their registration. Penalties apply for businesses that do not renew their registration before the expiry date.
Renewal forms must be mailed to Council's Public Health Unit at PO Box 168, Richmond, 3121.
Renewal payments can be made online by visiting the Payments Online webpage. Payments can also be made in person at one of Council's customer service centres.
If you are setting up a business or taking over or selling an existing business, you need to ensure the business is registererd with Council.
