Your business’s premises will, in all likelihood, need class 2 food registration.
Moving food from the main premises to an off-site premises requires an approved transport vehicle.
Reserving the right to sell alcohol at a off-site catered event can be a good source of revenue, not to mention a great selling point.
Your business will probably need a renewable limited liquor licence. If serving alcohol is a one-off, a temporary limited licence would be sufficient.
There are strict time limits for the Commission to consider a liquor licence application. Don’t leave it too late!
