When a health business, such as a hair, beauty or accommodation premise, changes ownership you need to transfer the registration into the new proprietors name. 

Food businesses can no longer transfer registration - please refer to buying and selling a food business for the changes under the Food Act. 

If a business is registered under the Public Health and Wellbeing Act you can still -
