Renewing your alcohol license is easy. You can now renew your license online. Before December 31st, log on to to complete the renewal application. Once your application is complete, go to to make your payment. We accept Visa, MasterCard and American Express. Payments are posted immediately.

  • An active account with a valid business tax number and PIN. 
  • Current and not delinquent alcohol account financial status. 
  • The same owners and/or principals of your business as originally reported to the City of Atlanta through a tax application or a change form.
  • The same location of your business as originally reported to the City of Atlanta. Any changes to the physical location require an approval from the Zoning Enforcement Division.
  • The same legal entity/legal name holding the business tax certificate as originally reported to the City of Atlanta.

Thế giới cáPlease note that new applications must be submitted if there is a transfer of location, a change of operating status (nightclub to restaurant), and/or a change of ownership. For more information, please contact the Atlanta Police Department License and Permits at 404-546-4470.

Thế giới cáAfter December 31, 2013, the online renewal service will no longer be available. You will have to pick up the renewal forms from the License and Permit Unit office located at the Public Safety Annex at 3493 Donald Lee Hollowell Parkway. You will then have to set up an appointment with an alcohol investigator to submit the renewal, make payment and schedule a License Review Board hearing date. Current applicants not renewing by December 31, 2013 will be considered a failure to renew. Those agents must stop selling, distributing, manufacturing or storing alcohol.
