Legal advice on obtaining a wholesale liquor licence

If you want to understand how the process of obtaining a wholesale liquor license works, rather than just becoming a holder of a permit, we advise you to seek introductory advice from our experts.

At the meeting, you will meet the lawyer who will be handling your case and you will be able to ask him or her any questions you may have about the licence. The benefit for you as a client is that you get the specific information you need.

During initial consultation a lawyer:

  • Will explain what documents are necessary to apply for a licence.

  • Will help you choose the best type of license for wholesale trade of alcohol.

  • Will develop an algorithm of actions to achieve your goal.

The cost of the introductory consultation is from 2500 UAH. This amount is included in the price of the main service.

If you have complex issues that need to be worked out in detail, or if you want to understand all the nuances of starting a business, we recommend the Roadmap package.

The Law of Ukraine provides for the following types of the Alcohol Wholesale Trade Licenses and the amount of state fees for their issuance:

  • Alcoholic beverages, except for cider and perry (without adding alcohol) - UAH 500,000;
  • Cider and perry (without adding alcohol) - UAH 780;
  • Only beer, for producers that produce up to 3,000 hectoliters per year - UAH 30,000.

The type of license shall be chosen based on the activity you will carry out.

State fees must be paid before the application is submitted. They are not included in the cost of obtaining a liquor license.

You can’t pay for the entire term of the license at once, so you must pay the money annually.

The license is issued for a period of 5 years.

The liquor license is issued within 10 days upon submission of all documents.

In some cases, we can either obtain the Alcohol Wholesale Trade License on a turnkey basis, or provide you with a legal assistance and support of any stage of the process, such as registration of a place of trade.

We can also help with obtaining a wholesale license for tobacco.

Answers to frequently asked questions

Should I register the point of sale in the register of storage locations?

No. A point of sale shall be registered in the register of storage locations only if it is different from the place of trade.

May I pay the license fee for 5 years in advance?

No. The license fee must be paid annually. You can’t pay for 5 years at once.

Which body is responsible for licensing the wholesale trade in alcohol?

Licensing of this type of activity is carried out by the territorial bodies of the State tax service.

Some entrepreneurs believe that they can start trading in alcohol wholesaling before the license is obtained. And this is wrong, because alcohol wholesale trading without a license is punishable with a fine of UAH 17,000 and more.

Licensing of the alcohol wholesale trade requires great attention to detail.

We have been working in the field of legal services for over 10 years. During this period, we have gained not only invaluable knowledge, but also practical experience, which helps us to make the solution of any legal issues simple, safe and effective.
