If you hold a NSW liquor licence, you must pay an annual licence fee. Licence fees are calculated using a tiered fee structure:
- a base fee based on the licence type, plus
- risk-based loadings (if applicable).
Risk-based loadings only apply to some licences such as late trading venues, and venues that have committed serious liquor law offences. Risk-based loading fees include:
- a trading hours risk loading
- compliance risk loadings, including compliance history risk loading, patron capacity risk loading and location risk loading.
Annual liquor licence fees are calculated on 15 March each year using licence information held by the NSW Government on that date.
Your fee notice will be sent to you by email, SMS and mail. You can pay your fee online, by mail or at a service centre.Pay online
