Transfer a personal care business
If you are buying an existing personal care or body art business – such as hairdressing, beauty treatment, tattooing, ear-piercing and colonic irrigation - you will need to apply to transfer the current registration.
To apply to transfer the registration of the business you must lodge a completed application form and pay a transfer application fee.
The application form can be obtained by contacting the Compliance Administration Team on 9205 5166 who will raise the required fee and include it on the application form. The form can then be emailed or posted to you so that the transfer fee can be paid at the time of lodgment.
Once an application is lodged, an authorised officer will review the application, inspect the premises and provide a report to the applicant and the current proprietor.
Council must be notified when settlement has occurred. Once settlement has occurred and Council is satisfied all relevant requirements are being met, Council with transfer the registration over to the new proprietor for the remainder of the registration period (usually to the end of the current year).
