    Transfers & Variations

    We handle all requests for transfers, alterations and variations of Liquor Licenses.
  • 1


When you sell your premises the liquor licence stays with the premises and needs to be transferred to the new operator.  This process can take from 4-6 weeks with the Office of Liquor, Gaming and Regulation (OLGR) depending on the type of liquor licence being transferred. An Interim Authorisation to trade can be obtained in emergencies. 

If you are increasing or decreasing the licensed area of your premises an application to do so along with new plans is required to be submitted to OLGR. 

Any alterations to the premises over $50k requires an application to OLGR.

Any variations to a licence requires an application to OLGR. Examples of variations are:

  • a change of name of the licensed premises
  • adding a minors clause
  • adding a catering away endorsement
  • extending liquor trading hours
  • requesting increase in noise conditions by providing an acoustic report
