Victorian liquor licence renewal notices will soon be distributed for the 2017 trading year.

Licensees will now have the option to register for an eLicence and receive their licence by email once payment is received.

Liquor licence renewals fees are due by 31 December 2016. Please read your renewal notice carefully to ensure you pay correctly. Each licence incurs a different fee depending on individual categories and conditions.

eLicence

Liquor licensees can register for eLicence following three simple steps.

  1. Pay – Renewal payments are due to the State Revenue Office by 31 December 2016. Payment methods can be found on your liquor licence renewal notice.
  2. Register – Licensees can register for eLicence via the elicence portal. Licensees will require the individual registration PIN located on their renewal notice and their licence number to complete registration.  
  3. Print - Once a licensee has registered for an eLicence and paid their renewal fee. their 2017 liquor licence will be emailed along with printing details.

Licensees who receive their 2017 liquor licence prior to 1 January 2017 must continue to display their 2016 licence up to and including 31 December 2016.

For licensees who do not register for an eLicence, licences will be mailed-out from late February onwards. Licensees must continue to display their 2016 licence until their 2017 licence arrives.

Reducing renewal fees

There are ways that licensees may be able to reduce the annual renewal fee. This varies depending on the individual licence.

Applications to reduce or waive a renewal fee should be lodged prior to 31 December 2016. Information about reducing or waiving renewal fees can be found on our website at Reduce or waive renewal fee.

For more information about renewing your liquor licence visit our frequently asked questions page.

Signage – mandatory for all liquor licensees

Mandatory liquor licence signage is being updated to reflect current penalty rates and will be available for download from our website from 1 December 2016.

Please ensure you have the most up-to-date signage by checking the keycode (located in the bottom left-hand corner of the poster) against the keycode listed on the liquor signage page of our website.
