The Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario (AGCO) is responsible for administering the Liquor Licence Act (LLA) that covers most aspects of Ontario's beverage alcohol laws. The paralegal experts at Swords Law have vast experience in assisting clients embroiled in situations over compliance with the Act’s regulatory requirements. Securing Swords Law for legal advice in such situations can help ease the stress involved in the often complicated processes involved in dealing with the AGCO. Swords Law has special expertise in this area, and can help you in all aspects of AGCO litigation including the following:
As a result of changes in regulations, a licensee no longer has three months after the date on which the licence expires to renew a liquor licence. Your liquor sales licence renewal application and your appropriate alcohol licensing fees must be received by the AGCO by the expiry date on the license. If both of these elements are not received before the expiry date, your license will expire and you can no longer sell or serve alcohol. At that point you will have to go through the reapplication process. That could take time, severely curtailing your ability to make money in your establishment.
The experts at Swords Law can help you deal with the AGCO when seeking your licence renewal, especially in situations where you may owe money to the Ministry of Finance for retail sales tax or if there has been a change of ownership that may not have been previously reported. Both of these situations can complicate the process, and having paralegal experts from Swords Law working on your behalf can help simplify the situation.
There are strict rules and guidelines restauranteurs must follow to remain in compliance with AGCO requirements. Liquor licence holders, for example, must comply with the proper hours for sale and service of alcohol, which in Ontario currently sit at 11:00am to 2:00am Monday through Sunday. All signs of liquor must be cleared 45 minutes after the end time of the license, including the clearing of all glasses and bottles from tables. If a random inspection of an establishment is conducted where the licensee is found to be in contravention of AGCO requirements or conditions of licence it could result in loss of license.
Swords Law works on behalf of any client dealing found to have committed an infraction that has them at odds with the AGCO. Dealing with government regulators is very difficult and can take your focus away from running your business. The team of experts at Swords Law can take on that burden and fight to ensure your business can continue to thrive and prosper.
