Liquor fees are charged for licence applications, and a range of other activities relating to the licensing system.
Any application received by the Victorian Commission for Gambling and Liquor Regulation (VCGLR) must be accompanied by the correct fee. Failure to submit the correct fee will result in the application being returned.
On the 1 July each year, government fees and fines associated with non-compliance are increased automatically.
The increases to application fees and fines for non-compliance with liquor laws occur immediately, while the increases to renewal fees take effect each year when payable by 31 December, irrespective of when the licence is granted.
Once an application has been registered, the application fee is non-refundable.
