Hospitality Managers Guide to Licencing Legislation
This licence authorises you to sell, supply, and deliver liquor for consumption off the premises, and the supply of complementary samples of liquor on the premises. A typical example of a business with an off-licence liquor licence is a supermarket, wine store or bottle shop. Only complementary samples of liquor can be consumed on the premises, no other drinking on these premises is allowed. On-licence premises
This licence authorises you to sell, supply, and deliver liquor for consumption on premises or conveyances, and the supply of complementary samples of liquor on the premises. A typical example of a business with an on-licence liquor licence would be a restaurant or bar. Once you have made your application, it takes approximately 20 working days for Auckland Council to process your application.

Please note that Temporary Authorities cannot be granted to club licenced premises. Special locations
