With properties in NSW in high demand, it is now easier than ever for businesses to stay on top of their staff’s real estate and property licences.

Minister for Fair Trading Eleni Petinos said real estate and property service companies could now use their Service NSW Business Profile to check and manage licences to easily stay on top of compliance obligations.

“The real estate and property sector is worth around $24 billion annually to the NSW economy. With more than 25,000 real estate licence holders, it is critical to ensure real estate agents’ licences are up-to-date and easily accessible,” Ms Petinos said.

“The licence manager tool uses data from the public register of licence holders to notify a business owner when an employee’s licence is cancelled, surrendered, suspended, expiring soon or expired."

“This allows business owners to easily manage these essential compliance checks and spend more time focused on running and growing their business.”

Businesses can also stay on top of construction and trade licences through the Service NSW Business Profile, making it easier than ever to track the accreditation of sub-contractors and employees.

Minister for Customer Service and Digital Government Victor Dominello said the Business Profile made it faster and easier for businesses to manage business licences and applications for grants, voucher programs and more.

“As a modern and customer-centric government we are committed to giving business owners the support and tools they need to thrive and the Service NSW Business Profile provides a smart and secure digital gateway for transacting with government and managing their business,” Mr Dominello said.

Businesses can learn more or sign up for a Business Profile on the Service NSW website.
