Exemptions to restricted trading days

Certain types of business are exempt from any restricted trading days. They can open whenever they wish throughout the year. The types of business that are exempt are:

* chemists
* petrol shops
* restaurants
* cafes
* takeaway outlets
* service providers
* hire outlets (including video stores)

La Porchetta's would be very close to the exemption limit.

Can I open my shop on a public holiday?
Restricted trading days

Victorian law specifies that there are three and a half restricted trading days each year:

* Good Friday  
* Easter Sunday  
* Christmas Day  
* between 12.01 am and 1pm on ANZAC Day   

On these particular days, only exempt shops are permitted to open.

Exempt shops

Exempt shops are businesses that meet the following criteria:

  • they have 20 or fewer persons employed in the shop at any time during a restricted trading day
  • the number of persons employed by the business and its related entities is no more than 100 at any time during the 7 days immediately before the restricted trading day

Easter trading

Easter Saturday is a public holiday, but no trading restrictions apply on that day. On Easter Sunday hardware shops and plant nurseries, irrespective of employee numbers, may also choose to open.

Exemptions to restricted trading days

Certain types of business are exempt from any restricted trading days. They can open whenever they wish throughout the year. The types of business that are exempt are:

  • chemists
  • petrol shops
  • restaurants
  • cafes
  • takeaway outlets

  • hire outlets (including video stores)

In addition, a three year special exemption from Easter Sunday shop closing times has been granted to the following councils, and applies in 2009, 2010 and 2011:

Modi  said about 5 years ago:

City of Greater Dandenong – the area within the boundary fence of the Sandown International Raceway

I don't know why this is so funny, but it is.

intruder  said about 5 years ago:

Very little is open on Good Friday except for those places in designated tourism areas.

It's been like this for years. Nothing's changed. Why is it always so confusing and frightening for people every year?

If you are a bottle shop, then you dont have to pay anything above your normal licensing fees, but still have to pay staff penalty rates. If you are a shop that happens to also sell alcohol, you have to pay a large sum of money to sell booze on good friday - according to my local store that sells booze, the figure is about 10k. Not sure where pubs who sell over the counter fit in.


eucalyptus  said about 1 year ago:

But why? Jesus reasons? Seems a bit silly.


liamsnice  said about 1 year ago:

K2, I don't think that's true.

Victoria
Liquor is on tap from 12 noon – 11pm today. Some venues may have obtained special conditions to serve earlier or later depending on their license, but this is on a case by case basis. Same applies to take away trade.
''Packaged liquor outlets can trade on Good Friday if it is allowed by their liquor license,'' a spokeswoman for the Victorian Commission for Gambling and Liquor Regulation told news.com.au.
“Good Friday only alters the trading hours, not the supply, therefore venues that are authorised to supply on and off the premises can continue to do so.”

also, this from State Gov website -

Restricted trading days
Victorian law specifies that there are two and a half restricted trading days each year:

Good Friday
Christmas Day
between 12.01 am and 1pm on ANZAC Day.
On these particular days, only exempt shops are permitted to open.

Exempt shops
Exempt shops are businesses that meet the following criteria:
they have 20 or fewer persons employed in the shop at any time during a restricted trading day
the number of persons employed by the business and its related entities is no more than 100 at any time during the 7 days immediately before the restricted trading day


liamsnice  said about 1 year ago:

Every liquor licence is different. They all have different rules depending on where you are at, what zone, what you do etc.

If you want to alter your licence for one day (good friday for example) you can fill out an application to do so temporarily. This does not cost 10k to do, it would be more like a few hundred. Also, you can only do it 5 times a year I believe.

Weird, I should let the guy at TT Mart know. He had to block off the booze section of the shop all day yesterday as he didn't want to pay the ''10k''.


liamsnice  said about 1 year ago:

I may be wrong but I don't think so. But his licence may not allow him to trade.
