You will need this authority if you intend to act as the licensee of a licensed liquor premises where the current licensee is unable or unwilling to exercise the authority of the licence.
An interim authority may be applied for where a licensee will be away from the licensed premises for a lengthy period of time (e.g. long service leave, maternity leave or service in the armed forces). If a licensee will be absent for a short amount of time, but for more than seven days, written advice as to who will be in control of the premises should be provided to the Commissioner for Licensing.
Please consult the Contact Officer for more information.
