This application kit contains the information and forms you need to complete and submit your application for a sporting and community club.
Before applying for a liquor licence, there are a few things you need to consider, including licence requirements.
A renewable limited licence - club may authorise the supply of alcohol:
The Liquor Control Reform Act 1998 (the Act) regulates the supply and consumption of liquor in Victoria.
The Victorian Government recognises the importance of sporting, recreational and social clubs to local communities. Many clubs share facilities such as clubrooms, function areas and sporting fields.
Clubs may apply for approval to allow unaccompanied underage persons on their licensed premises for sporting and ancillary activities.
Under the Liquor Control Reform Act 1998 (the Act), licensees are required to display certain signage (also referred to as posters) around their licensed premises.
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.
