Where a body corporate is the holder of a licence, other than an occasional liquor licence, and wishes to appoint a person to a position of authority in the body corporate as a director and/or shareholder, an application must be lodged with the licensing authority seeking approval to do so.
That person cannot assume a position of authority in a body corporate as a director and/or shareholder that holds a licence until approval has been given by the licensing authority.
When is an application not required?
In the case of a person who has already been approved by the licensing authority as a shareholder in the body corporate that holds a licence and wishes to increase or decrease their shareholding in that company. In this instance, written advice of the change is required within 14 days of the change.
