Clubs welcome fee relief

ClubsNSW welcomes the NSW Government’s decision to waive liquor licence fees for 12 months for the state’s 1200 registered clubs.

The decision will save the industry $7.25 million in total and provide individual venues with average liquor licence fee relief of $6,046.

ClubsNSW CEO Josh Landis said the decision was another helpful initiative, following on from the recent announcement of gaming and payroll tax deferrals for the industry.

“This is a sensible move by the government and one which will provide some additional relief for the industry, particularly for smaller venues and those in rural and regional parts of the state,” Mr Landis said.

“This is an exceptionally challenging time for clubs and every little bit of assistance helps. “We welcome the decision and thank the government for its ongoing support of clubs.”
