Off-premises catering - Queensland

Service summary

If you hold a commercial other subsidiary on-premises licence, commercial hotel licence or commercial other subsidiary off-premises licence, you may apply for approval to cater for functions held away from the main licensed premises. A function is an event or occasion:

  • to which persons are invited by or on behalf of its organiser
  • that happens in premises hired for the purpose by the organiser.

It does not include:

  • an event or occasion organised by the owner or licensee of premises in which the event or occasion happens for his or her own benefit, solely or partially (for example, a promotion event for the premises)
  • an event or occasion organised by another person if the owner or licensee of the premises in which the event or occasion happens is entitled to receive benefit other than by the way of charge for use of the premises and provision of catering facilities.

Note: If you are catering for a public event, you must make a separate application for a commercial public event permit. A public event is one held at premises other than the licensee's main premises, which is not a private event (e.g. a football game or concert).
