Groups: cancellation of group approval

Where either an entire group or an individual member intends to cease trading, the group representative should advise us 30 calendar days prior to the intended date.

If a group disbands, but some or all of the group wish to continue trading as individual entities, they must re-apply in their own right. The group members will continue to trade under the group URN until their own applications have been processed.

Failure to comply with these notification periods can attract civil penalties – please see AWRS140000 for further details.
