Volume Transfer is the transfer of Supply Point, including all historical transfer of data ownership, from an exiting retailer to an incoming retailer taking over ownership of the Supply Point. A Volume Transfer should be completed if:

• a retailer intends to sell or transfer ownership of all or part of its business and assets;

• a wholesaler no longer holds an appointment in relation to all or part of its wholesale area;

• a wholesaler no longer holds an appointment in relation to all or part of its wholesale area;

• an exiting retailer applies to the Secretary of State (SoS) for permission to withdraw from the non-household retail market, in accordance with exit regulations.

The application to SoS will be approved upon wholesaler change of ownership and/or if a retailer or wholesaler intends to change the name of its business.

The Market Codes have a process in place to cater for Volume Transfer. This is covered in CSD 0003 (Volume Transfers and Volume Data Update). The process mimics a registration transfer and provides a clear audit trail of the change. The difference between a standard transfer application process and a Volume Transfer is simple. Following a Volume Transfer, all historical records that were registered with the exiting retailer will now be registered to the incoming retailer (the one taking over ownership of the Supply Point). Under a standard transfer application process, however, historical records are not transferred.
