O.C.G.A §3-2-7.1 requires the Department of Revenue to develop and implement a state-wide centralized application process for initial applications and renewals of retail licenses. The centralized licensing process provides a way for retail licensees to simultaneously apply for such licenses and renewals online.  The license types included in the centralized licensing process are retail, consumption on premises, and special events.
