Transferring your Business

If you are leaving or selling a food business, you will need to complete an Application to Cancel Food Business Registration. If you are purchasing an existing food business, you will need to compelte a new application form

For both Health and Beauty and Prescribed Accommodation Premises, an application must be made to Council to transfer the registration to the owner of the business.

You can get information on the current condition of the business and any issues that have been identified through inspections by an Environmental Health Officer. Consent from the existing owner must be obtained before Council can release information.

When settlement of a business purchase is complete, the completed transfer of registration form and relevant fee must be submitted to Council. Failure to do so can result in penalties.

Contact Environmental Health on (03) 5391 4444 to obtain the relevant forms or if you have any further enquiries, you can email eho@hindmarsh.vic.gov.au.
