The Liquor and Gaming Branch provides administrative support to the Commissioner for Licensing and the Tasmanian Liquor and Gaming Commission. These are separate legal entities established under the Tasmanian Liquor Licensing Act 1990 and the Gaming Control Act 1993.
From 1 June 2017 the Liquor and Gaming Branch will phase in the issue of licences and permits electronically. This will mean that these documents and any supporting information will be sent by email. If you require any further information with regard to this, please contact the Branch on 6166 4040.
The Tasmanian Liquor and Gaming Commission has issued a number of fines recently to licensed premises gaming licence holders who have had staff performing gaming duties that did not hold a current special employee's licence. Please ensure that you have checks in place to confirm staff who will be undertaking gaming duties, hold a current special employee's licence.
Staff operating Ubet terminals only, are not required to hold a licence.
