Business, hobby or personal use - understanding the differences
Registering with us depends on if your importation or manufacture is for personal, hobby or commercial use.
We get a lot of questions on this topic. Our page 'Business, hobby or personal use' has examples to help you work out when you do need to register and when you don't, including 4 examples of when you don't need to register.
Our registration year is 1 September and to 31 August. Everyone who should be registered must be by 31 August each year.
