Business registration and licence extensions

Due to the impact COVID-19 has had on the hospitality and skin penetration industry, Council determined to waiver renewal fees for the registration of food businesses and public health risk activities for the 2020/21 financial year. This means, for these existing Devonport businesses, when you reregister in November 2020 you will not be required to pay a fee.

To ensure clarity for all types of registration/licence holders in the Devonport area, details are provided below:

Food Businesses

  • Food business registrations (including mobile food vans) due to expire on 30 June 2020 are automatically extended until 31 December 2020. All existing food businesses have now been emailed a link to complete the renewal application online. There will be no fees for the 2020/2021 period.

Public Health Risk Activities

  • Tattooing and piercing business registrations due to expire on 30 June 2020 were automatically extended until 27 November 2020. All existing businesses have now been emailed a link to complete the renewal application online. There will be no fees for the 2020/2021 period.
  • Tattooing and piercing operator licences due to expire on 30 June 2020 were automatically extended until 27 November 2020. All existing licenced operators have now been emailed a link to complete the public health risk operator application online. There will be no fees for the 2020/2021 period.

Regulated Systems

  • Cooling tower registrations will expire as normal on 30 June 2020, as no extension has been declared by the State Government. Businesses can expect to receive their usual renewal documentation from Council in July 2020.

Private Water Carriers

  • Water carrier registrations will expire as normal on 30 June 2020, as no extension has been declared by the State Government. Businesses can expect to receive their usual renewal documentation from Council in July 2020.
