You don't need to have breakaway brakes fitted unless your rig exceeds 2,000kg GTM (Gross Trailer Mass or the maximum permissible on your wheels, does not include tow ball weight.) There is nothing stopping from fitting them on smaller trailers but if you do then you must maintain the battery that supplies the brake current.
