E-Licensing System

Do you operate a pub, restaurant or hotel?

The Courts Service have announced the roll out of an online e-licensing system over the coming year.  The licensing applications will be submitted through the Courts Service Online (CSOL) System.  This long-awaited service is central to the strategy of the Courts Service Digitalisation.

Currently the e-licensing system is being piloted across 4 counties (Donegal, Sligo, Leitrim & Louth) with full implementation across all counties aimed for by early 2020.  Notably this new system should reduce or eliminate attendance in court offices in relation to licensing, provide a secure online payment platform and online e-registers.

The new online e-register is now live for the 4 counties and will save time and money for all involved and therefore is sure to be welcomed by the hospitality sector.

The filing and payment of annual excise duty will remain the same and the liquor licence must be renewed and excise duty paid by 30th September 2019.
