Guideline 31: Gratuitous supply of liquor

Liquor Act 1992 - Section 148

The Commissioner for Liquor and Gaming may approve a part or parts of the licensed premises, which are ordinarily used for the business of the licence, as an area in which gratuitous supply may be allowed to take place after approved trading hours.

The types of circumstances that would be considered for approval on specific occasions are when the licensee can demonstrate that a special event, such as a staff party, is planned or the licensee is hosting a private function with friends or family.
