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 when 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 period of more than seven days, written advice as to who will be in control of the premises should be provided to the Commissioner.
Please consult the Contact Officer for more information.
