The centralized state-wide Alcohol and Licensing Portal (ALP) in a collaborative effort with local governing authorities to streamline the retail alcohol initial registration and renewal licensing process. This web-based secure portal ensures both the Department and local licensing jurisdictions receive, review, and process all retail alcohol applications in the ALP.
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.
