Notification of Appointment of a Manager (Liquor) - New South Wales


You are required to notify the Authority if your organisation holds a liquor licence and intends to appoint a manager to the licensed premises.

A corporation may hold a liquor licence, just as an individual can. However, the corporate licensee must appoint an approved manager to the licensed premises. You are required to notify the Authority when you have appointed an approved person as the manager of your licensed premises. The person you intend to appoint as your manager must apply to the Authority to be an approved manager. Once your manager has been approved, you must notify the Authority within 28 days.

Please be aware that if you operate a registered club with a single premises you do not need to appoint a manager and lodge this notice, because the secretary of your club is taken to be the manager. If you operate a registered club with multiple premises, you must appoint a manager and lodge this notice for each premises other than the main premises.

Service type

Eligibility requirements

To be eligible you must:

  • hold a corporate liquor licence
  • have a manager who has been approved by the Authority.

Please be aware that you cannot appoint a manager that holds an appointment as a manager of other licensed premises.
