An Extended Trading Permit (ETP) can be granted by the Licensing Authority to permit a Licensee to trade in a manner that they would otherwise not be permitted to under the primary liquor Licence.

There are multiple sub-categories of ETP which can be granted. In some circumstances, multiple ETP’s can be granted and attached to a single licence, in appropriate circumstances.

Categories of Permanent ETP include:

  • Ongoing Hours - to permit trade beyond the usual permitted hours
  • Liquor without a Meal (Restaurant Only – over or under 120 persons) – to permit Restaurants to sell liquor without a meal
  • Alfresco – to permit trade from an area without exclusive tenure
  • Area – to permit trade from an adjacent area not permitted under the licence
  • Dining Area (Nightclub, Producers and Hotel licence only) – to permit sale of liquor ancillary of a meal in a specified dining area
  • Lodgers/Residential Accommodation – permits restaurant licensee to sell and supply liquor at any time to lodged residing in accommodation operated by Licensee at same site as Restaurant.
  • Catering - permits Licensee to sell liquor as a caterer on specified premises not forming part of licensed premises under licence.
  • Late Delivery (Liquor Stores only) – permits delivery of liquor purchased during trading hours, outside regular trading hours.
  • Associations – Club Licences permitted to sell liquor to separate group of persons not members.
  • Cellar Door (Producers Only) - permits sale of liquor on premises from which Licensee would not otherwise be permitted.

It is also possible to seek what is known as a “One-off ETP”, where a Venue may wish to trade in a particular manner for a specified even for a specified limited duration. “One off” has been deemed to include a series of events, such as a month-long sporting tournament outside of trading hours (such as the World Cup).
