Pay annual liquor licence fees

The South Australian Government has announced additional support for liquor licence holders affected by COVID-19, with a fifty percent reduction of fees available for 2021-22 for some licensees.

See the CBS website for more details.

Liquor licence holders must pay an annual fee. Consumer and Business Services (CBS) will send an invoice each year, which must be paid by 30 June.

If you don’t pay your annual fee by the due date your licence may be suspended and may then be revoked.

Use the fee calculator to calculate your annual licensing fees.

Fee management

How fees are calculated

Annual licence fees are calculated based on:

  • licence category
  • capacity allowed in premises
  • trading hours
  • high risk activities
  • high risk locations
  • sale of liquor for consumption off the premises (takeaway)
  • event and transport endorsements.

See Liquor licensing annual fee information for more.

Vary licence conditions

You may be able to reduce your annual fees by reducing the venue capacity or trading hours, or removing endorsements.

See Reducing your annual liquor licence fee for more.

You can also vary your licence conditions, hours or capacity.

Use the fee calculator to see the impact on your annual fee.
