The wholesale liquor sales data reporting period for 2019-20 is now open.
Every year, we collect sales data from certain Victorian liquor licensees who have sold wholesale liquor to other Victorian licensees.
Licensees with the following licence types must collect and report information about their annual wholesale liquor transactions to other Victorian licensees unless exempt:
Some licence holders with the above licence types may be exempt from reporting requirements. Licensees who may be exempt include independent producers (excluding importers) and who produced less than:
Note: If you exceed the limit in one liquor category listed above, you must report all wholesale transactions to Victorian licensees for that year.
Licensees who were exempt last year will still need to assess whether they are exempt this year, and if they are, should lodge an exemption.
To self-assess if you are exempt and how to lodge an exemption, see: Wholesale liquor portal
Wholesale sales data for the 2019-20 financial year must be reported to VCGLR by 15 August 2020 under the Liquor Control Reform Act 1998. Failure to do so may result in the VCGLR taking 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.
For information on the data that needs to be collected and how to submit data using our online portal, see: Wholesale liquor sales data reporting
