Mpumalanga Liquor Licence Holders - Renew before 30 September or you may be fined

Mpumalanga Liquor Act ("Liquor Act") - Mpumalanga liquor licence holders should take note of the new requirements to renew their liquor licences.   Liquor licences are not renewed by merely paying the annual liquor licence fee, as was the case under the previous, 1989 - Liquor Act.  The new Liquor Act,  introduced at the end of August 2014, requires licence holders to apply to have their licences renewed no less than 90 days before a licence would expire.   The application has to be accompanied by proof of payment of the annual liquor licence fee.   This means that all Mpumalange Liquor Licence holders have to submit a licence renewal application on or before 30 September 2015, with proof of payment of the annual licence fee for 2016.   Failure to do so, may lead to heavy penalties.  Worse still, the renewal application may not be considered until proof of payment is presented.

The Licence Co (LiquorWise Division) urges all Mpumalanga Licence Holders to proceed with lodgement of their liquor licence renewal applications without delay to prevent having to pay penalties and possibly jeapordise the validity of their licences.
