(CMR) The Department of Commerce of Investment wishes to advise current holders of liquor licenses, without a trade and business license, to submit an application to the Trade and Business Licensing Board before August 31, 2020.
Effective October 1, 2020, all liquor license holders are required to have a valid trade and business license along with a liquor license to sell and distribute intoxicating liquor.
This is pursuant to the Liquor Licensing Law, which was revised in 2016. Included in the changes was the requirement for a liquor license holder to obtain a valid trade and business license prior to holding a liquor license. When the law came into effect in 2016, holders of valid liquor licenses were given an exemption for a transitional period.
This exemption expires in September 2020.
Members of the public can contact the Department of Commerce and Investment for trade and business licensing information at 345-945-0934 or via email [email protected].
