Restricted liquor permit
A restricted liquor permit is issued for non-proprietary clubs that wish to trade for up to a maximum of 10 hours per week or 25 hours per week.
Trading hours are nominated by the club and endorsed on the permit. These hours are not transferable.
Permits can be issued for a minimum of three months and a maximum of six months. The cost of the permit depends on the number of months and the number of trading hours per week.
If you hold a restricted liquor permit, you may sell liquor for consumption on the premises to:
- members of another club with formal reciprocal rights
- guests of a member or reciprocal member (in the member's company).
You must keep two registers:
- a register of members with subscription details
- a register of all members of reciprocal clubs or guests who visit the club.
To find out if your club is a non-proprietary club, check out the liquor definitions.
