You will need this licence if you intend to sell tobacco and e-cigarette products by retail.
A tobacco product is anything that contains tobacco or is designed for the purpose of smoking tobacco (e.g. herbal cigarettes, filters and cigarette papers). An e-cigarette product is a device that is designed to generate or release aerosol or vapour for inhalation by its user in a manner similar to the inhalation of smoke from an ignited tobacco product. An e-cigarette product includes parts designed for an e-cigarette (e.g. battery, heating element, or vapour).
It is a requirement that you display a copy of the licence and a prescribed notice next to each point of sale.
The approved number of tobacco and e-cigarette points of sale are restricted according to whether the retailer holds also a liquor licence.
If you intend to sell tobacco or e-cigarette at more than one retail outlet, you must hold a separate tobacco and e-cigarette licence for each of these outlets.
