New funeral pricing transparency laws for Queensland

From 1 July 2022, funeral directors and businesses must comply with the Fair Trading (Funeral Pricing) Regulation 2022 which requires them to display an itemised price list on business websites and in-store.

Businesses also need to display the price of your least expensive package for consumers wanting a simple funeral.

The regulation aims to introduce greater price transparency for consumers, as well as create a level playing field and a more competitive market for businesses.

This was written with information taken from a Queensland Government post published on 2nd June, 2022.
