Our clients. Over many years they made us well aware of their difficulties with compliance.
The new “Risk-based license fee scheme has been described as a “Cash grab”. WHY?
Liquor licensing lawyer David Sylvester was reported in “The Shout” on 4/07/2014 as saying a “Cash grab as a single breach could increase the annual fee for a pub from $500 to $11,500”
How many breaches, and the total in fines, issued to NSW licensed premises in the 4 years prior to the introduction of the new “risk-based” licence fee scheme?
  • 4,348 non-compliance breaches
  • $2.4M + in fines were issued
Information obtained under Freedom of Information; NSW Police Force – Information Access & Subpoena Unit (Dated 15/04/2013, 21/01/2014 & 11/02/2015)
How long do scan sets take?
  • Premises with NO gaming machines; under 5 minutes
  • Hotels & Clubs with 30 gaming machines; around 15-20 minutes

Reports?
Available online, anywhere, anytime. Reports provide the evidence to management, or as evidence to defend a breach matter. “This is to certify that information provided from a compliance check conducted on ; ..Date.. and completed by..name..name.., an employee of ..The Business name”. “The premises demonstrated its compliance with all mandatory signs for it’s licence type” “Emailed to licensee: date, date, Time”

A declaration that your premises is complying with its legal responsibilities. We recommend that Affirmations are conducted at least once a month. Affirmations provide further evidence for your business.
How often should I conduct scan-sets?
This is entirely up to the licensee. However we recommend:
  • Premises with NO gaming machines; at least once a month
  • Hotels & Clubs with 30 gaming machines; at least once each week
  • They can be conducted weekly, monthly or every change of shift
||My premise is small, why do I need this?||
It is to ensure you comply, AND to be able to prove your compliance with your legal requirements as a licensee

It depends on the size of your premises, however; Premises with NO gaming machines; allow 15 to 20 minutes. Hotels and Clubs with 30 gaming machines; allow up to 1 hour.
