You will required to provide this notification if your business sells tobacco or is intending to sell tobacco.
You must not sell tobacco products unless you have notified the Agency. This can be done through the free online Government Licensing Service. All businesses who sell tobacco are required to make a notification. This includes tobacconists, major retailers, convenience stores, owners and lessees of tobacco vending machines and occupiers of premises with tobacco vending machines (pubs, clubs, restaurants and the casino).
The purpose of this notification is to inform the Agency about the number and location of tobacco retailers in NSW in order to support compliance monitoring and enforcement of tobacco retailing laws.
Please be aware that you must notify your details through the Government Licensing Service within 28 days after becoming aware of changes to:
- The business address;
- The trading premises address;
- The name or address of any owner or director of the business; or
- A change in the ownership of the business.
Changes to the notification, other than a change in ownership of the tobacco retailing business, need to be notified. A change in ownership of your business will require a new notification to be made through the Government Licensing Service. If you stop selling tobacco, it is your responsibility to cancel your Tobacco Retailer Notification.
