Requirements when applying to add, vary or cancel a condition of a permanent liquor licence.
A permanent Add, Vary or Cancel application is used where the licensee wishes to change an imposed condition of its liquor licence. You can choose to add a new condition, vary an existing condition or cancel an existing condition.
Applicants must lodge a completed application form (see below) with the department.
An application is not considered lodged until the fee has been received. An invoice for payment will be issued on receipt of your emailed or posted form and can either be paid through the licensee's online portal account, by posting a cheque made payable to the Gaming and Wagering Commission or a BPOINT payment link can be emailed on request. Application fees are not subject to GST.
Applications will not be progressed until the fee is received. Generally the application fee is not refundable, even if the application is refused or withdrawn.
Whilst the State of Emergency Declaration is in effect the application fees to permanently add, vary or cancel a condition of licence or permit are waived. Please note that applications will be determined on their merit.
With respect to a One-off Extended Trading Permit application or Add, Vary or Cancel a condition of licence application sought for a function or event that takes place over a number of dates, the fee will be calculated based upon the total maximum number
of persons expected to be present in the licensed area at any one time for each date. For example: if a function or event runs for 2 days and the maximum number of persons expected to be present in the licensed area at any one time is 300, then the
fee will be calculated on an attendance of 300 for each date and will be $229.
In order for the licensing authority to consider an application to alter the licence conditions you may be requested to lodge a public interest submission detailing the changes and the reasons why you need to trade in a manner not already permitted on your permanent liquor licence.
