Important Updates to the Gauteng Liquor Act 2003

1] Transfer of Liquor Licences

Previously, the liquor authority issued certificates upon authorising the transfer of a liquor licence. However, section 104 of the Gauteng Liquor Act stipulates that a licence, rather than a certificate, should be issued. Effective from 5th June 2024, the authority will issue licences instead of certificates for transferred liquor licences.

Any establishment owner currently holding a valid certificate issued by the Board is advised to contact the liquor authority to arrange for the substitution of their certificate with a licence.

For the full notice, please refer to page 49 of the attached Provincial Gazette.

2] Appointment of Responsible Persons

From 5th June 2024, when notifying the liquor authority of the appointment of a natural person or persons to manage the business, the appropriate form (Form 4 of Schedule 2, as provided for in the Regulations) must be completed and submitted, along with proof of payment of the required fee for each individual person.

For the full notice, please refer to page 52 of the attached Provincial Gazette.
