  • Liquor Licence Applications (New, Renewals & Temporary Authorities)

For businesses in the Greater Wellington, Kapiti, Horowhenua & Wairarapa we can assist with applications for On & Off Licences (both new and renewals). 

If you wish to be involved in the sale or supply of liquor to the public or members of a club, and you do not have a current liquor licence, then you will need to make a formal application for a licence.  This is done through the District Licensing Committee (DLC) attached to your local council.   Generally, if there are no complications, it will take approximately six weeks for an application to be processed.

We can select the appropriate licence or licenses for you and can make the application on your behalf.  We can assist you to complete your application to ensure a speedy granting of your licence.
