When applying for a NSW firearms licence, a business, club or government agency must nominate a licence holder or, if the business is a corporation, a 'nominated person'.
The nominated licence holder or person must complete the application on behalf of the business, club or government agency.
Evidence of a genuine reason for the possession and use of a firearm must be provided.
There can be more than one genuine reason on a firearms licence, and the genuine reason(s) will determine:
- the category of licence issued
- the type of firearm(s) authorised for possession and use.
Firearms licences are issued for either a 2-year or 5-year term.
A fee is attached to this application. Fee exemptions are only applicable to businesses with the genuine reason of primary production.Apply online
