New Liquor Act for North West Province

North West Liquor Law - The new liquor Act for the North West Province was published in the provincial gazette on 21 June 2017.  Click HERE and tell us which information you would like to receive on the new Liquor Act - such as new trading hours?  Some of the new provisions contained in the North West Liquor Act are :
  • Licence holders must convert their current licences within 3 years
  • Increase in fees
  • New types of licences
  • Amnesty period of 24 months for blacks who operate illegal liquor outlets from their homes
It is a complete overhaul of the old Liquor Act of 1989 and will be implemented on a date which is yet to be announced.   Current and potential liquor licence holders should take note of the new licensing provisions - if not, current liquor licence holders may end up with invalid licences. 

We will be updated liquor licence holders in the North West Province over the next few weeks in more detail about the new North West Liquor Act.
