Paying your annual fee

We calculate annual liquor licence fees on 15 March each year using licence information held by the NSW Government.

Depending on the contact details we have for you, you may receive your notice of your annual liquor licence fee via email, SMS, or mail.

We will contact you with:

  • your individualised annual liquor licence fee
  • the payment due date
  • instructions how to pay.

It's important to keep your contact details up-to-date so that you receive your liquor licence fee payment notices and reminders in the future.

Check your liquor licence authorisations and conditions to see whether you may be able to apply for a trading hours risk loading exemption or reduce your annual fee by reducing your trading hours by applying for occasional extended trading condition (OETC).

Notice for 2018

Licencees have had their licences permanently cancelled who did not:

  • reinstate their licence
  • pay their outstanding liquor licence fee
  • pay the late payment fee
  • pay the $250 reinstatement application fee.

If you had your licence cancelled, you must apply for a new liquor licence if you wish to re-enter the industry and sell or supply alcohol.

Significant penalties apply if you sell or supply liquor or operate gaming machines without a valid 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 a 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 gaming machine entitlements not transferred by the end of the 12 month period or the 24 month extension period, are forfeited to the Independent Liquor & Gaming Authority Board (ILGA).
