Alcohol licence annual fees
You need to pay an annual fee if you hold an alcohol licence. Each year we will send you a letter to remind you when the annual fee is due and how much it is.
You must pay the fee within 30 days of the due date.
If the annual fee remains unpaid after 30 days, we will suspend your licence and you will not be able to sell or supply alcohol until you pay the fee.
About six weeks before your alcohol licence expires you will receive a reminder to apply to renew your licence.
The fees for alcohol licences are classed from very low risk to very high risk. The fees for each category (incl. GST) are:
Read fee table.
|Category|| Application fee|| Annual fee|
