Paying your annual fee

Licences who did not reinstate their licence and pay their outstanding liquor licence fee (including the late payment fee and $250 reinstatement application fee) by 20 September 2018 have had their liquor licence permanently cancelled.

You must apply for a new liquor licence if you wish to sell or supply alcohol. 

You face significant penalties if you sell or supply liquor or operate gaming machines without a valid liquor licence.

Any gaming machine entitlements held in relation to a cancelled or surrendered licence can be transferred within 12 months immediately following the cancellation or surrender of the licence. 

You can extend this period by a further 12 months (to a total of 24 months) by paying a levy of $500 per entitlement.

Any entitlements not transferred by the end of the 12 month period or the 24 month extended period, are forfeited to the Independent Liquor and Gaming Authority.
