Each year Victorian liquor licensees are required to pay renewal fees and are issued a new licence to display in their venues. The Victorian Commission for Gambling and Liquor Regulation (VCGLR) has begun to mail out 2016 liquor licences to licensees who have paid their renewal fee.
Liquor licensees are responsible for the safety of their venues — for their patrons, their employees and the community. Licensees must meet their liquor licence conditions and ensure that alcohol is served safely and responsibly.
If you have a Restaurant and Café Licence, you have certain obligations to abide by.
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.
The VCGLR in conjunction with Good Sports provide an industry-recognised club seminar course. The course helps sporting and community clubs manage alcohol responsibly and reduce alcohol-related problems.
If you have a on-premises or late night on-premises licence, you have certain obligations to abide by.
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.
If you run have a live music venue, you have certain obligations to abide by.
All licences granted in Victoria have a set of standard obligations that a licence holder must meet in order to comply with the requirements of the licence. This page summarises the standard obligations.
