Braaap Wholesale's director Brad Smith and former general manager Toby Wilkin were relieved from attending the company's sentencing in the Launceston Magistrates Court on Tuesday.
The company pleaded guilty to six counts of approval for the placement of identification plates and three counts of importation of vehicles requiring modification.
Magistrate Ken Stanton said the circumstances of the company's offending were critical. Magistrate Stanton said compliance was particularly important in motorcycles, but Braaap's failure to have motorbikes fitted with specified parts was not deliberate.
During sentencing submission earlier this month, the court heard Braaap engaged a company that specialised in engineering and importation procedures and requirements when it started to import road bikes.
An audit in 2016 revealed five bikes were fitted with parts in breach of the Identification Plate Approval conditions, but Magistrate Stanton said the fact the bikes still meet safety requirements was mitigating.
The company also imported 82 motorcycles from overseas on a number of conditions set out by the federal Infrastructure Department.
Despite the department specifying the road bikes remain in Braaap's possession until the conditions were met, 25 of the motorcycles were sent to another business without identification plates. The bikes couldn't be registered without the plates, but Magistrate Stanton said it was a clear case of Braaap putting its financial position ahead of regulatory compliance.
Braaap Wholesale is in liquidation but Mr Smith is hopeful the company can be restored.
Magistrate Stanton said the operational status of Braaap Wholesale was not clear but he wanted to ensure the penalty imposed was not crushing.
Braaap Wholesale was convicted on all nine counts and fined a total of $25,000.
