Fees overview

On-licences, off-licences and club licences incur two main fees - application fees and annual fees.

The application fee is payable whenever an application is lodged: for a new licence, to renew a licence, or to vary the conditions of an existing licence. An application to renew and vary a licence is only charged one application fee.

Annual fees are paid in advance, for the following 12 months. The initial annual fees take effect from the day the licence is issued, and thereafter are due each year on the anniversary of the licence.

In addition to both of the above, a supplementary compliance certificate fee of $275 is payable for all new licence and variation applications. This is to cover the additional costs incurred of having the application checked by the QLDC Building and Planning teams, to ensure the application meets requirements of the Natural and Built Environment Act 2023 and of the building code (s.100(f)).
