How to Obtain a Liquor License in New York?
Any entity that wants to produce, distribute, or sell liquor will need to obtain a mandatory liquor license. To make certain proper regulation of the liquor industry stays intact, each county within New York has developed a license quota. The term of the liquor license is determined by specific municipal, county, state, and Federal regulations. When the term of the liquor license expires, it can be easily renewed.

Before an individual starts a liquor business, he or she will need to perform the the following:
They must get in touch with the alcoholic beverage control board in New York to learn what type of license needs to be obtained.

They must prepare an application to get the license and have it validated by the necessary people.

They must submit an application to the alcoholic beverage control board or the local liquor authority agency.

What is the Cost of a Liquor License?
The requirements for a liquor license will vary from county to county. Because of the variation of the license, the application and processing fee will also vary. There are some states that require entities to get four liquor licenses, which include local, county, state, as well as Federal government licenses.

What are the Requirements for a Liquor License in New York?
In order to be eligible to get a liquor license in New York, an individual must meet the following conditions:
They must be at least 21 years of age to get a liquor license;
They must be in a sound mindset that is capable of understanding the penalties that are involved with having a liquor license;
They must be a citizen of the United States, a person who is from a country that has a treaty with the United States, or a permanent resident of the United States;
They must not be a police officer;
They must not have any past criminal convictions.

What are Some Factors That Determine Liquor License Requirements?
The following circumstance will be considered by the alcoholic beverage control board to decide how liquor license fees are issued:
The type of business can either be a restaurant, bar, or hotel.

The type of alcohol that is going to be sold will influence fees. There are different liquor license that are required to sell different kinds of alcohol.

The drinking premises can also influence liquor license fees. When patrons will be drinking alcohol on the premises, the cost of the liquor license will be expensive due to the fact that emergencies may take place as well as the care that is required to take care of customers. A liquor license fee that permits drinking on the premises of the business can cost $4,352.

The days and hours of operation also determine how much fees will be for a liquor license. When the business is open late, a liquor license will be more costly than businesses that are open earlier in the day.
The cost will also be determine based on if an individual wants to produce, distribute, or sell alcohol. In New York, the fees can vary between $2,800 to $5,900, which depends on the area of the business. It may cost a business that is located in Times Square more to obtain a liquor license than it would a business that is located in a quiet neighborhood in Brooklyn.

Aside from all the costs that are involved with obtaining a liquor license, having one can increase a businesses customer base and profits. However, it is vital that an individual never attempts to sell alcohol without a liquor license issued by the appropriate agency. If an individual fails to get a liquor license and sells alcohol, it could result in serious penalties that include a costly civil fine, incarceration in prison, or both. In addition, those in violation of selling alcohol without a liquor license will probably lose some of its customer base.
