BC Liquor License Application Help

Obtaining (and maintaining) a liquor license in BC is not as easy as one would hope. You need a skilled consultant and mentor that is well-versed in BC liquor licensing rules and regulations and understands how to identify application and operational red flags that will result in an application delays and possible terminations.

 

A BC liquor license application isn’t simply a form that you fill out and mail in. The application process is arduous and includes a laundry-list of requirements, from background information on business owners and partners, municipal licensing and building codes, right down to your business’s floor plan. Failure to fulfill just one requirement can result in extreme delays and possible rejection of your license application.

 

Businesses owners that get it wrong have two choices: give up, or, start the costly process all over again. Our BC liquor licensing services streamline the process and increase the chances of your application approval. We’ll also help you keep your license in good standing by ensuring that any changes to your operation do not cause a compliance and enforcement issue. This misfortune frequently occurs because of a business owner’s lack of understanding of the “fine print”. Getting a liquor license in BC or a cannabis license is tough enough but maintaining your license can be equally difficult without the right expertise to back you up.
