Non-Example: A member's brother is a licensed plumber and has an Australian Business Number. The member's brother offers to transport the member's dog to the new housing benefit location for $100. The cost of relocating the dog will not be reimbursed to the member because his brother's business is not transporting or boarding household pets.
