Liquor fees are charged for licence applications, and a range of other activities relating to the licensing system.
The Victorian Government has announced a range of tax relief measures as part of its economic survival package in response to coronavirus, including reimbursing businesses that have paid for a renewable liquor licence for 2020.
For more information, see: 2020 liquor licensing fees waivers and refunds
Any application received by us 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 gazetted by the Victorian Treasurer.
Any 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.
