HEADS UP: Scalping Is Now Officially Illegal In NSW

Thinking about making a little cash from that spare ticket? Think again. In NSW, new laws to target ticket scalping started on 1 June 2018, and that sale could land you in hot water.

It is now against the law to resell tickets above the original cost, plus transaction costs (capped at 10% of the ticket cost).

The new laws apply to all tickets to NSW events that are first sold or supplied by the authorised seller from 1 June 2018 and have a resale restriction. A resale restriction is a term or condition of a ticket that limits the circumstances in which the ticket may be resold, or prohibits resale of the ticket.

You can read more about the law on the Fair Trading website here.
