Lest We Forget this ANZAC Day
This Saturday, 25 April will mark Anzac Day and while the dawn service and various parades will unfortunately not be able to take place this year, the laws around Anzac Day trading still very much apply. These laws (Section 34 of the Trading Hours Act) prohibit the business of selling real estate, though work associated with the leasing of real estate is still permissible. In effect, this means that all work related to the sale of property such as private inspections, phone calls, emails and marketing campaigning must not be conducted. Breaching these trading laws carries a fine of up to $5,222 per breach for an individual and up to $26,110 for a corporation.
While this forced time off might normally give Queensland’s hard-working agents a much needed break, they unfortunately cannot use this opportunity to attend Anzac Day dawn services nor other parades and events due to the current public health restrictions. Instead, RSL Queensland invites you to partake in its Light Up The Dawn initiative so that we can all still come together to show respect and gratitude to all those who have served and sacrificed.
At dawn this Saturday, join all Australians in standing in their driveways or on their balconies and be united in commemoration of our Anzacs. RSL Queensland has also provided an audio file so that we can all participate in the Order of Service. The REIQ would like to encourage its members and the greater public to Light Up The Dawn and come together in true Anzac Spirit this Anzac Day.
Lest we forget.
