Alcohol and Gambling Fees

Use the calculator to work out how much you will pay for your alcohol licence. Fees are set as at 1 July 2023.

The Sale and Supply of Alcohol Act 2012 sets licensing fees for on, off, and club licences. The default fees vary depending on the ‘cost/risk rating’ of each premises. The default fees consist of:

  • an application fee, which licensees will have to pay when they apply for a new, renewed, or variation to a licence, and 
  • an annual fee, which must be paid by licensees each year.

A premises' cost/risk rating will be determined by a combination of factors including opening hours, type of premises, and whether they have had any enforcement issues. View the framework for determining cost/risk rating.
