If you are considering purchasing a food business we recommend contacting us for advice first.
We will be able to advise whether the current food control plan or national programme can be transferred. This will depend on the scope of the current business and the scope of the new business.
You may need to complete a new plan if the scope of your business is different. See register a food business for information related to food registration.
When you take over a food business you must notify us by completing a notification form.
