What Can You Do With a Temporary Liquor License in NY State?

You Can Get Approved for a Temporary Liquor License If You Have a Criminal Record

A criminal record, prior convictions or issues with substance abuse do not automatically disqualify you from getting approved for a temporary liquor license. 

However, getting approved for a temporary liquor license does require some extra steps if you have a criminal record or a history of substance abuse. 

If you have a criminal record or history of substance abuse, you'll need to complete the temporary liquor license application completely and honestly.

New York State Liquor Authority Consulting has years of experience with helping people with criminal records or substance abuse issues to get approved for a temporary liquor license.

When the proper steps are taken, you can still get approved for a temporary liquor license.

How to Apply for a Temporary Liquor License (Temporary Permits)

If you need to know how to apply for a temporary liquor license, you're looking to sell liquor as soon as you can.

However, the process to apply for a temporary liquor license doesn't make it quick or easy to get approved and start selling. The temporary liquor license application is confusing and very detailed. Even what seems like a straightforward, minor part of an application can cause an application to be rejected by the State Liquor Authority.

A temporary liquor license application also requires a huge amount of supporting documents and evidence, including relevant photos of where you want to sell liquor, copies of contracts, and documents that prove that you're not in violation of existing liquor laws.
