Liquor licence fee waiver for 2020 and 2021
A waiver of liquor licencing fees for 2020 was announced on 21 March 2020. Businesses that have paid for a renewable liquor licence for 2020 will be reimbursed their licence fee and those yet to pay will have the fee waived. The State Revenue Office will administer the reimbursement, regardless of whether the licence fee was paid to it or the Victorian Commission for Gambling and Liquor Regulation.
A waiver of liquor licencing fees for 2021 was announced on 13 September 2020 meaning eligible businesses will not have to pay their 2021 renewal fees.
