STAGE 4 RESTRICTIONS – METROPOLITAN MELBOURNE
TOBACCONISTS MUST CLOSE – FURTHER INFORMATION

The Victorian government has updated its directive and now considers tobacconists as non-fundamental to the critical supply chain.

Therefore tobacconists under stage 4 restrictions cannot operate and must be closed.
Full details can be found via this link.

Business Victoria has advised that you can only be considered convenience or newsagency if that is your primary trade according to the ANZSIC classification code on the Australian Business Register. If you do not know your ANZSIC you can contact the ABR on tel 13 92 26.

Unfortunately, this is no longer in line with the advice provided to TSG on 4th August when TSG was seeking clarification for our network. Therefore TSG advises any retailers who are not convenience or newsagent according to their ANZSIC classification code to close immediately.

Full details on permitted workplaces in the Retail Trade (Goods) sector can be found here. 

You may also seek further advice from Business Victoria on phone 13 22 15.
