Suspend or surrender a liquor licence

Suspend a licence

You can apply to suspend your liquor licence at any time for a limited period of time, for example due to a temporary closure.

If you have a gaming licence when you suspend your liquor licence the gaming licence will also be suspended.

You won't be charged annual fees during the time that your licence is suspended, but once the suspension is lifted you will be invoiced for the remainder of the financial year.

Surrender a licence

You can apply to surrender your liquor licence at any time.

If you don't own the property your landlord must also sign the application form consenting to the surrender.

If you have a gaming licence when you surrender your liquor licence the gaming licence will also be surrendered.

If you surrender a liquor licence, it doesn't affect any liabilities until the surrender is accepted by the Liquor and Gambling Commissioner.
