IMPORTANT NOTICE: A Declared State of Disaster is currently in place across Victoria. For more information, see: COVID-19 information for licensees
The 2019-20 wholesale liquor sales data reporting portal is now open and relevant licensees are legally required to report their wholesale liquor sales data by no later than midnight 15 August under the Liquor Control Reform Act 1998 via the Wholesale liquor portal unless exempt.
Failure to do so may result in disciplinary action.
Although, the legal reporting deadline of 15 August 2020 still applies, we recognise the coronavirus (COVID-19) has created challenges for the industry. The wholesale reporting portal will remain open and accept reports from licensees up until midnight 31 August 2020 AEST, to ensure all licensees can report their 2019-20 data.
A wholesale sales transaction is when one licensee supplies liquor to another licensee in their capacity as a licensee.
This data helps the Victorian Government estimate the alcohol consumed across Victoria and informs the development of alcohol related harm minimisation policies.
Licensees are required to report the following*:
* Requirements may alter each financial year
** The Liquor Control Reform (Wholesale Liquor Supply Information) Regulations 2015 (PDF, 72KB) provides definitions of types of liquor as well as definitions of bottle, cask and bulk containers.
The VCGLR has designed a template to collect wholesale transactions made in the 2018– 19 financial year. It is available on our website here through the wholesale data portal, and is the same as the 2017-18 template.
Please visit our wholesale data portal to report your data.
Full details on the information to be reported is available under 'Record keeping requirements' and the Regulations (PDF, 105.25 KB).

Licensees must submit their data or exemption by midnight on 15 August 2019.
The portal will open for submissions on 1 July 2019 and close at midnight on 15 August 2019.
There are some licensees that may be exempt from this reporting requirement. To find out if you are exempt or to register as exempt, please visit the wholesale data portal.
Exemptions do not apply to importers.
Please note: registering your exemption will ensure that we know not to contact you again regarding the 2018-2019 reporting period.
