Remove a producer/wholesaler licence

We treat an application to remove a producer/wholesaler liquor licence to another location as if it's an application for a new producer/wholesaler liquor licence.

Apply to remove your producer/wholesaler liquor licence (PDF, 215KB).

Before you apply

You can't lodge an application to remove your producer/wholesaler liquor licence until you consult your local community.

This means that either before or within 2 working days of lodging your application you must:

  • Give a full copy of your application to the NSW Police Local Area Command nearest to your proposed licensed premises
  • Notify the local council
  • Attach a site notice to your premises so passers-by can see it easily. The site notice must remain until we decide your application.

How much will it cost?

Refer to the Liquor Fee Schedule to calculate your fee. 

How long will it take?

About 12 to 16 weeks.

Once you lodge a complete application, we'll post it on our Liquor and Gaming Application Noticeboard for 30 days to give the public a chance to comment.

When the 30-day public submission period is over, you can expect us to determine your application within 8-12 weeks.

However, there will be delays if you fail to respond to our requests for information.

What is a complete application?

  • A completed application form and fee
  • A current NSW National Police Certificate – for individual applicants
  • An ASIC extract providing details of directors and officeholders
  • A copy of development approval from your local council
  • Evidence of Responsible Service of Alcohol (RSA)
  • Evidence of development consent from your local council – if it applies
  • Evidence that you've told neighbouring premises. You must complete and sign this advertising certificate (DOC, 47KB).
  • Evidence that you attached a site notice to your premises

You can lodge your application without giving us the above documentation, but your proposal won't progress to a decision without it.

Authorisations for the licence you want to remove

You can't remove authorisations along with a club liquor licence.

If your current producer/wholesaler licence has a drink on premises authorisation, you must re-apply if you want this authorisation at your new premises.

This authorisation allows you to sell liquor for consumption on your licensed premises. It applies only to producers of wine, perry, cider or mead.​
