Holiday trading reminder

Dealers are being reminded of the legal trading hours for the upcoming Easter and Anzac weekends.

The Imported Motor Vehicle Industry Association (VIA) has sent out a message to its members pointing out they are not permitted to trade on Good Friday, April 15, and Easter Sunday, April 17.

Malcolm Yorston, technical manager adds: “You can trade on Easter Monday, April 18, but you must pay staff who work time-and-a-half plus give them a day in lieu.”

He notes employees who work on Anzac Day – Monday, April 25 – must receive the same benefits and businesses cannot trade until 1pm that day.

Any members with questions can contact VIA on 0800-842-842 or email
