Annual liquor licence fee payment notices coming soon

Liquor licensees will be sent their annual liquor licence fee notice in April via post and email.

Licensees are encouraged to pay their fees on time to avoid late fees and licence suspensions.

Every holder of a NSW liquor licence needs to pay an annual liquor licence fee. In 2018, the fee is calculated using:

  • a base fee, plus
  • risk-based loadings (trading hours and compliance risk loadings) if applicable.

All liquor licensees will pay a base fee based on their licence type. However, risk-based loadings only apply to some licensees such as late trading venues and venues that have committed serious liquor law offences.
