FAQs Click on the questions below to reveal the answer.

Who is entitled to apply for a Liquor Licence?

In order to qualify to obtain a Liquor Licence you need to have a substantially clean slate with the Police. The Police are entitled to object to the granting of the Licence.

Additionally, the Police may object if the actual premises have a bad history with other operators.

You will need to satisfy the Court that you have adequate financial resources and preferably adequate business experience to undertake the conduct of the Licence.

Who can share in the profits?

Only the Licence holders are entitled to receive profits from licensed premises. If the Licence Holder is a Company then the shareholders must be approved by the Liquor Licensing Commission.
