Licence Application Assistance

Liquor Licence Applications

When you establish a new business that requires a liquor licence, and you need a planning permit and a liquor licence - we can assist. 

When purchasing an existing licensed premises, whether a hotel, restaurant, or bar, you want the transfer to occur smoothly and without unnecessary delays - we can assist.

Some people use their Solicitors to assist in obtaining a new or the transfer of an existing liquor licence. Some people do the process themselves. That's OK as long as you give yourself sufficient lead-in times when things (may) go wrong.

We provide advice, arrange reports  and prepare documentation to ensure that the granting of a new liquor licence, or the transfer of an existing Liquor Licence runs smoothly and without costly omissions.

Experience demonstrates that engaging an advisor who has a detailed understanding and expert knowledge of the operations of the Liquor Control Reform Act, is a distinct advantage to applicants.  The use of an advisor results in the completion of the licence application process in a faster and and less expensive manner. Our team of professionals are trained, motivated, and approachable and can provide comprehensive cost effective solutions to meet your needs.

Before requesting your solicitor to assist in the liquor licensing processes, compare our service, experience, and PRICE.
