Subject:                                     Third line forcing notifications N98005 & N98006 lodged by Finn Franchising Australia Pty Ltd & Finn Business Sales Pty Ltd [DLM=For-Official-Use-Only]


Security Classification:       UNCLASSIFIED For Official Use Only


Dear Mr Finn

I refer to the third line forcing notifications lodged with the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (the ACCC) by Finn Franchising Australia Pty Ltd & Finn Business Sales Pty Ltd on 27 November 2014.  They have been allocated the registration numbers N98005 & N98006. The notifications and this email will be placed on the ACCC’s public register which is available on the ACCC’s website.

The protection from legal action provided by the notifications commences automatically 14 days after the lodgement date, unless the ACCC objects.

On the basis of the information that you have provided, and that the parties will disclose all relevant terms and conditions to customers, the ACCC does not object to the notifications at this time.

If at any time circumstances change, or the ACCC receives further information, such that it is satisfied that the public benefits from the third line forcing conduct do not outweigh the public detriments, the ACCC may remove the protection provided by the notifications.


Please contact Luke Griffin on (02) 6243 1114 or by email to if you have any questions about this matter.
