Monday, 18 August 2014, is the renewal deadline for all liquor licence holders, including those with music and dancing licenses.

Licensees also are reminded that their premises should be inspected by the relevant Government agencies – the Fire Service, Port Authority, Environmental Health and Planning – before the 18 August deadline. To avoid processing delays, these reports should be submitted along with renewal applications.

However, even if these agencies' inspection reports are unavailable by the deadline, liquor licensing renewal applications still must be submitted to the Liquor Licensing Board by 18 August. Inspection reports from other departments should be forwarded to the board as soon as they are obtained.

Renewal applications have been mailed to each licence holder; however, copies also are available from the Liquor Licensing Board counter, first floor, Government Administration Building.

Renewal applicants may contact Liquor Licensing Board Secretary Marva Scott on 244-3168 for more information.
