Step 5A: Statutory Declaration for Non-Primary Producers

If you are not a farmer, you are classified as a non-primary producer.

Non-primary producers are also required to provide a signed statutory declaration* with their application with the following information:

What is the requirement of a quad bike or SSV for your business - why do you need it? what work tasks will you be carrying out with the vehicle?
Confirmation that the quad bike or SSV is/will be used for work purposes.
Confirmation that the quad bike or SSV is/will be used to carry out work tasks for the ABN provided on the application.

For example:

“I own a horse-riding school (John Smith’s Horse-Riding Lessons ABN 12 345 678 910) in Orange NSW. We require regular use of a quad bike to feed, muster and check on the horses. We also use the quad bike to carry out maintenance in the paddocks. I am upgrading our quad bike to a SSV as it is a safer vehicle for both myself and my workers. I confirm that the SSV was purchased for work purposes to carry out tasks for John Smith’s Horse-Riding Lessons ABN 12 345 678 910”.

* A statutory declaration is a written statement which a person swears, affirms or declares to be true in the presence of an authorised witness and is made under the Oaths Act 1900. You can find a template on the NSW Communities and Justice website www.jp.nsw.gov.au.
