Temporary Authorities

If you are purchasing an existing licensed business, you are able to apply for what is known as a temporary authority.  This allows you to trade on the licence that’s in force for up to three months during which time you must apply for your own licence.  It should normally take approximately 2 weeks to be issued with a temporary authority.

No temporary authority will be issued until the applicant has supplied details of a certificated manager and confirmation that the landlord agrees to the assignment of lease.

The application costs $132.00.
