Reminders for annual liquor licence fees are due to be sent to licensees by the end of June. To ensure you receive notification, please update your contact details through the OLGR client portal.
Dates to Remember
30 June 2019 – Date by which each licensee will have received an assessment of annual licence fees from OLGR. If you have not received an assessment by this date, please contact OLGR on 07 3224 7131. (Current and past LGS clients can feel free to contact us for assistance.)
1 July 2019 – Earliest date you can pay your annual licence fees. This can be done through the OLGR client portal, by telephone, by post or in person at the customer service desk.
Note: OLGR will not accept credit card payments by email or facsimile.
If you have suffered some financial hardship or natural disaster you may be able to pay your annual liquor licence fees in instalments. We recommend you contact OLGR in advance of the deadline if you want to explore this option. Of course, we are also happy to assist in the preparation of submissions if required.
31 July 2019 – Deadline for payment of annual licence fees. Your licence will be automatically suspended if fees are not paid by this date.
Note: if your licence is suspended due to non-payment of annual fees, you are not authorised to sell liquor until the fees have been paid. Numerous licensees have been fined for this in the past few years.
28 August 2019 – Date on which your licence will be cancelled if annual licence fees remain unpaid. There is no provision in the Liquor Act for reinstatement of a licence cancelled for non-payment of fees. If your licence is cancelled you may need to go through the full application process, including advertising for objections.
