New Alcoholic Beverage Permitting Law: 30-Day Deadline for Reporting Changes to TABC

TEXAS HOSPITALITY SERVICES, LLC issued an ADVISORY REGULATORY ALERT today warning all bars, restaurants, hotels, convenience and liquor stores, private clubs and other businesses operating with a permit under the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Code, that effective August 21, 2016, all TABC-permittees and -licensees are newly required to report changes to the TABCommission. Previously, such changes were not due to be reported until the next Renewal Application was filed.  

Specifically, the newly enacted TABCode provisions require that the following changes must now be reported to TABC no later than the 30 th  day after the change occurs:

A change of tradename must be reported before the change is implemented.

The new Rule does not change the statutory provisions that require Mixed Beverage Permittees to report changes of over 50 percent ownership before they take effect. The Rule also does not change the statutory requirement to report a change from a sole proprietorship to an entity not later than the 11th day preceding the date the change will occur.

Andy Siegel, President of TEXAS HOSPITALITY SERVICES, cautioned, “This new TABC Rule means that many changes that might routinely take place in an alcoholic beverage business must be reported to the TABCommission almost immediately.”

Siegel advises permittees to contact TEXAS HOSPITALITY SERVICES before making company or Permit changes so that we can help you to accurately report the changes on time. If you have made changes that need to be reported, we will consult with you and help you bring your company into compliance. Please call or email Andy Siegel, President, Texas Hospitality Services, for information and to cost-effectively handle all of your important permitting and reporting needs: (M) @ 214.460-7855, or Email: andy@txhospitality.com.
