When someone runs free-entry competitions such as sweeps or giveaways to promote their business, they need to have a trade promotion lottery permit.

If you want to check if someone holding one of these promotions has a permit, and what the permit entitles them to do, you can search online.

What you need

  2. Enter the licence information into the search bar.
