​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Alcohol licensing fees and charges

Alcohol licensing fees are set out by the Ministry of Justice in the Sale and Supply of Alcohol Fees Regulations 2013. The regulations have introduced national risk-based fees for all alcohol licences which more fairly reflects the cost of alcohol licensing. 

The information below is about alcohol licensing fees and charges only. See alcohol licensing for details on licensing legislation, policies and bylaws, alcohol bans, requirements, guidelines, obligations, processes and application forms.​

Guidelines for calculating your application fee can be found on these fact sheets:

You can find more information on the new fee structure at the Ministr​y of Justice website​.
