TPAL is a leading compliance specialist focused on helping brands, agencies and law firms apply for competition permits, perform government approved random draws, and draft terms and conditions for chance based promotions and games of skill.
We are an Australian company, Trade Promotions and Lotteries Pty Ltd (ACN 601 297 330) and are accredited to perform electronic random draws (approval number 1224) in all Australian states (including NSW and SA). Our terms and conditions have been created with the assistance of our partner who can assist with bespoke or complicated legal matters.
We operate on the principle that the "boring" part of a campaign should be as pleasant as possible and cause minimum stress. The regulations associated with running a competition are complex and each Australian state and territory have different rules which can make it confusing. If you run a "national" promotion, you need to keep track of the laws imposed by each state jurisdiction even if you don't need a permit.
Our guided and interactive form automatically tells you whether you need one or more permits, and then if required, allows you to complete a simple-to-use online application. If you want, we can auto-generate the terms and conditions based on your specific application.
Once you submit your application, we will immediately proceed to review the specifics of your promotion, before submitting it with the relevant state(s).
Our job is then to ensure smooth and fast approval. If the state(s) have any questions that we can’t answer on your behalf, we will contact you to discuss. Once approved, we will auto-email you the permit certificates and approval numbers.
You can log back in to TPAL, at any time, to view what you need to do after the competition starts (eg publish the winners or perform an unclaimed prize draw). This same list of tasks is also automatically emailed to you.
