Level 1 COVID-19 Business Assistance Package

On Thursday 24 February 2022 the McGowan Government announced a $3.5 million waiver of Western Australian liquor licencing fees as part of a $67 million COVID-19 Business Assistance Package for businesses adversely affected by increasing cases and the introduction of level 1 public health and social measures.

  • Liquor licence annual fees for 2022 will be waived and refunds provided for businesses that have already paid — if you are eligible for a liquor licence annual fee refund, you will have been sent an email from the Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries with instructions. If the department does not have your current email contact address, you can complete the online refund form.
  • Fees will be waived for new permit applications or variations to existing permits to enable extended alfresco trading.
  • Activating Alfresco Rebate Program is open for applications — how to apply for the Activating Alfresco Rebate Program.

To date the McGowan Government has committed more than $1.6 billion to support businesses throughout the pandemic.
