How do I renew or cancel my food licence?
Once a licence is issued by Council, it will remain in force until the 30th of June each year, unless surrendered or cancelled prior to this date.
In the months prior to the end of the financial year, the licensee will receive a renewal notice and accompanying invoice. The notice must be completed and returned to Council, and the payment made prior to 30 June.
Please note, if your food licence is not renewed with the renewal form and payment of the licence fee, your food licence will lapse by the end of August, and you will need to reapply for a food licence.
The Food Act 2006 requires a written comfirmation of your intention to surrender your licence. If your business is no longer trading, please email Council email@example.com advising that operation of the food business has ceased.
