New and Transfer License

 
  • Applying for a new or transfer liquor license is a long process, involving approval from the ABC Board, Local Government and other state agencies.
  • It is difficult to estimate processing times for applications once they are submitted to our office. Our goal is three months, but our metrics -- particularly with all of the new Title 4 Rewrite changes -- is unfortunately much longer. It has taken six to nine months for entirely new license applications. While our work is proceeding, please contact us to see what steps you can simultaneously take to speed up the issuance process (e.g., ensuring local governments will not object to your application, ensuring that all prior obligations to Department of Revenue and Labor are paid, and addressing any building requirements or necessary Fire Marshall approvals).
  • AMCO Examiners have no authority to approve or expedite an application.
  • We endeavor to decrease our review time so you can open your doors as early as possible. However, please know that submitting your application by the published board deadline does not guarantee your submission will be presented at the next regularly scheduled board meeting. The volume of applications submitted, as well as the completeness of your application, will affect the length of time it takes for your application to be deemed complete and ready to be scheduled for board consideration. 

Please follow the application instructions carefully.

Fingerprints must be submitted with each application along with the $48.25 per person processing fee per fingerprint card. Cards cannot be submitted electronically to AMCO. Applicants must use an approved agency to obtain fingerprints. For a list of approved agencies please visit Public Safety's website
