A One-off Extended Trading Permit (ETP) application is required where the licensee wishes to extend their permitted trading hours/area or manner of trade as afforded in the Act.
Licensees that hold a special facility licence must lodge a One-off Add, Vary or Cancel application instead.
Lodging the application
Applicants must complete an online application via our online portal, this application must be made from an account that is currently linked to the relevant liquor licence (the licensee’s account). If the licensee does not have an account, one must be created.
One-off ETP types
There are two different One-Off ETP types:
- Extended Hours and/or Area;
- Other (which includes non member, cocktail and nightclub functions and offsite catering).
When your application must be lodged
- Up to 500 persons on premises for extension: 14 days prior to event date.
- Over 500 persons on premises for extension: 30 days prior to event date.
- Over 5000 persons on premises for extension: 60 days prior to event date.
Choosing the correct permit type
Our system is designed to assist you in selecting the correct permit type. However, to make it easier, the following can be used as a guide.
Extended Hours and/or Area
This permit type is used to extend the hours and/or area for a one-off event to be held on or adjacent to the existing liquor licensed premises. If the licensee intends to extend the licensed area to include an area not covered by the existing liquor licence then the licensee will also need to provide the written consent of the freehold owner and an outlined map of the proposed extended area.
Other (Non Members Functions - Club/Club Restricted Licences)
To be used when the holder of a Club or Club Restricted liquor licence wishes to hold an event for non-members (ie persons not members of the club or guests of members). This allows for non-members to purchase liquor directly from the bar without being a member or a guest of a member. Please note that this application can also include requests to extend the trading hours and/or licensed area.
Other (Cocktail Functions - Restaurant Licences)
This type of one off permit allows the licensee of a restaurant liquor licence to serve liquor to patrons not necessarily seated and not ancillary to a meal. Please note that this application can also include requests to extend the trading hours and/or licensed area.
Other (Nightclub Functions - Nightclub Licences)
The holder of a Nightclub licence may apply for a one-off extended trading permit to waive the requirement for continuous live entertainment for a special occasion or function. Please note that this application can also include requests to extend the trading hours and/or licensed area.
Offsite Catering (limited licence types)
A licensee who has been engaged to cater for a one off function not at the licensed premises may apply for this permit type for a one-off private function.
Submissions for Events over 500 persons
Where it is anticipated that more than 500 persons will be present in the proposed licensed area at any one time during the one-off event or function, submissions must be provided detailing the event and how it will be managed.
