​Manager approval and appointment

A corporation may hold a liquor licence just as an individual can. However, the corporate licensee must appoint an approved manager to the licensed premises.

There is a two-step process of approval and appointment with Liquor & Gaming NSW. L&GNSW accepts all applications on behalf of ILGA.

Step 1 - Approval of manager
