Here is an overview of 2019 record keeping needed for chance trade promotions lotteries, Trade Promotions Update | Record Keeping: A Guide.


What do you need to keep?

Each state/territory in Australia (except Tasmania) has its own requirements on what records must be kept for trade promotions. In summary, you’ll need to keep all records relating to a trade promotion:

  • Entry forms.
  • Winner details (name and address).
  • Prize details (including values).
  • Evidence that prizes were awarded (and the dates).
  • Evidence that winners were notified.

In addition for NSW promotions…

  • A list of all entrants.
  • The date winners were determined.
