Death of a liquor licensee

If a liquor licensee dies, the licence continues in force until the date it:

  • expires or
  • is cancelled under section 80 of the Liquor Act 2019 – whichever happens first.

Liquor licence holders must also pay an annual fee based on the risk classification of their licence. Find out how much you might need to pay using the calculator.
