View Act and Regulations

The sale or supply of liquor to the public requires a licence under the Sale of Liquor Act 1989. There are 4 types of licences:

A licence is issued to a named person, company or legal entity in relation to a premises or conveyance. Conveyances are vehicles such as aircraft, vessels, trains etc. A licence cannot be transferred from one person to another or from one premises or conveyance to another.

You must obtain a Certificate of Use and Building Certificate before applying for an alcohol licence. Refer to the forms page.

Contact us if you plan on selling or supplying liquor to the public, as you will need to consider planning and building issues and any other rules specific to your area. You will also need to talk to us about any requirements for kitchen, bar and toilet facilities.
