​Occ​asional Extended T​​​rading Condition

Licensees who are required to pay a trading hours risk loading can reduce their annual liquor licence fee by applying for an occasional extended trading condition (OETC) to be imposed on their licence. This condition on your licence will mean that you can only trade past midnight or 1.30am on up to 12 occasions over any 12-month period.

After your OETC is granted, you will pay one of the following risk loading fees:

Authorised Regular Trading HoursRisk Loading PayableOETC

Up to 1.30am$2,500Allows trading past 1.30am up to 12 occasions in any 12 month period

Applications for the 2017 OETC closed on 15 March 2017. Applications for 2018 will open in late 2017.

An occasional trading notification form must be completed and submitted to Liquor & Gaming NSW at least 14 days before each late trading occasion.
