If the licence fees are not paid by the due date, the licence will be automatically suspended immediately.If the fees remain unpaid the licence will be cancelled after 28 days. A licensee who has not paid the annual fee and continues to sell liquor after 2 March 2009 will be trading while unauthorised and may face severe penalties.
To pay your annual licence fee, download the self assessment checklist from here. Use the worksheet to calculate the annual amount payable and then divide it by two to work out the fee due by 2 March 2009.
Send your cheque payable to Queensland Treasury to:

Latest News: At least one licensee has reported paying the fee three weeks ago but receiving a “Final Demand” in the last couple of days. If this has happened to you, we recommend you verify that the cheque has cleared from your bank and if so, immediately contact our office to find out what you can do to rectify the situation.
