​Occ​asional Extended T​​​rading Condition

Licensees who are permitted to trade after midnight (including vessels) can reduce their annual liquor licence fee by applying for an occasional extended trading condition (OETC) to be imposed on their licence. This condition means you can only trade past midnight or 1.30am on up to 12 occasions over any 12-month period.

Licensees who have an OETC imposed and occasionally trade after midnight are not required to pay a trading hours risk loading.

Licensees that have an OETC imposed allowing regular trading up until 1:30 am, and occasional trading after 1.30am, are required to pay a $2,500 trading hours risk loading.

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

Note: If you have an OETC imposed on the licence, you must complete and submit an 
occasional trading notification form to Liquor & Gaming NSW at least 14 days before each late trading occasion.

If you are permitted to trade after midnight and wish to reduce your trading hours risk loading for the 2018 annual liquor licence fee, you need to apply for an occasional extended trading condition to be imposed on your licence. If you already have an OETC imposed on the licence, you do not need to reapply, unless your circumstances have changed.

Applications for the 2018 OETC are now open and will close on 15 March 2018.
