The Queensland Government is now in caretaker mode until after the state election. Minimal updates will be made to this site until after the election results are declared.
Changing or transferring a Commercial Activity Permit
If you hold a Commercial Activity Permit (CAP), you can request changes to your permit in writing. By law, you cannot transfer ownership of your CAP.
Apply in writing to change details
To change details on your permit, you can apply in writing to:
Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service
PO Box 15187
BRISBANE CITY EAST QLD 4001
Transferring CAP ownership
You cannot legally transfer ownership of a CAP, even if you sell your business.
Buyers will need to apply for a new CAP. There is no guarantee that a buyer will be granted a CAP, even if the business they are buying already has one.
We recommend that all potential buyers conduct proper due diligence and request a free pre-lodgement meeting with QPWS to discuss eligibility.
