This is issued when a new entity takes over an existing licensed premises and wishes to continue the sale and or supply of liquor until their own licence is issued. There must be a person with a manager's certificate on duty and a temporary authority can’t be issued to a club.
Please note more time is required to process licence applications over the Christmas/ New Year period. This is because working days include the period 20 December and 15 January under the Sale and Supply of Alcohol Act 2012.
Please ensure you get your renewal application in as soon as possible if your renewal is due between this period. You can continue to work even if your certificate isn’t renewed in time as long as the renewal application has been submitted and paid for. Please expect delays through December 2023 and January 2024.
Applications for building and planning certificates should be lodged at the same time as the temporary authority application. Where this is not possible they must be lodged within one month after the temporary authority has been granted.
Where applications are lodged at the same time the temporary authority may be issued for a period of three months. If the applications are not lodged within this timeframe the temporary authority will only be issued for a period of one month.
A temporary authority may be renewed where there is a justifiable reason for delay in the substantive licence application. There is a fee for any subsequent temporary authority applications and it is non-refundable.
The processing timeframe is can be up to 25 working days.
You need to provide all the required information when you lodge the application to avoid a delay in processing. (Note: To obtain a second Temporary Authority the applicant must have lodged a substantive licence application).
