Do you need assistance with your liquor licence? All businesses in Australia are required to a hold a Liquor or Wine Licence if they want to be able to serve alcoholic beverages to customers. For legal assistance setting up your business, LegalVision’s experienced liquor licence lawyers can assist.

Liquor licensing legislation regulating the service of alcohol in Australia is developed independently in each state. Collectively, these laws make it compulsory for pubs, bottle shops, bars and hotels, restaurants, catering services, event management services and even some cafes to hold a valid state liquor licence to operate. Typical licences across each state include:

  • Temporary licenses for one-off events;
  • Licenses limited by scale and scope such as trading hours, specialised product ranges or delivery;
  • Licenses for on-premise consumption or purchasing;
  • Licenses allowing BYO;
  • Licenses for wholesale supply;
  • Licenses setting up hotels, bars, clubs, restaurants, wineries or breweries; or even
  • Licenses for businesses processing internet and mail orders.

Consulting an experienced lawyer about Liquor Licences is common practice for many Australian business owners to better understand the type of licence required and the process involved. Business owners managing operations across various states must be aware of the high degree of variation between State LiquorLicensing Legislation. Many differ significantly on the types and number of licences available, requirements for these licences, as well as fee structures. You should then seek tailored legal advice from a lawyer familiar with your state’s legislation.
