Login to lodge and renew applications, manage licensing and submit returns.
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.
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.
There are two different One-Off ETP types:
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Applications for one-off Extended Trading Permits must be made under the name of the licensee of the licensed premises subject of the application.
