It's important to lodge your firm or individual licence renewal before the expiry date, regardless of the current situation with COVID-19. There is no grace period under the Security Providers Act 2014 to lodge your renewal late.
Late lodgement will result in your application being treated by the Office of Fair Trading (OFT) as a new application, meaning by law you cannot work until the new licence is issued.
