There are clear standards and guidelines for licensees to follow when advertising or promoting liquor sale or events.
The Liquor Control Reform Act 1998 (the Act) regulates the supply and consumption of liquor in Victoria.
Some Victorian liquor licensees must collect and report information about their annual wholesale transactions to other Victorian licensees. Read more to find out how and when to report.
As a liquor wholesaler, there are obligations you should be aware of. These are outlined on this page.
The star rating system provides greater incentives for licensees to comply with Victoria’s liquor licensing laws.
Liquor fees are a standard business cost for all licensees, and as such all licensees should factor this fee into their business planning.
Liquor licences are due for renewal by 31 December each year. Each licence incurs a separate fee and a number of factors determine how much a licensee is required to pay.
To surrender your liquor licence or permit, download and complete the Surrender a liquor licence or permit application form.
When transferring a licence, the proposed licensee cannot supply alcohol until the transfer application is granted by the Victorian Commission for Gambling and Liquor Regulation (VCGLR).
