Crystal Stump (founder and CEO of ABC Consulting and former special ABC Agent from the Alcohol Beverage Control Authority) explains what is happening with Virginia ABC alcohol licenses!
Pour yourself a drink; you’re going to need it!
Attention Virginia Licensees! We all recognize that you are going through a hard time (like many businesses, in Virginia) but the Virginia Governor Northam has deferred all license renewal payments for 90 days. So if your license expires March – June, you will have 90 days beyond that expiration date to pay those license renewals.
This is an effort to help you with your expenses and to give you time to recover and get back on track when Virginia allows you to fully open your business. At that point, the hope is that you’ll be able to afford the license renewals.
If you need assistance getting the license renewals paid and avoiding late fees, that is what ABC Consulting does. We’d love to help you get on track and not miss any future payments.
Also, if you have not taken your Alcohol Seller/Server training, we encourage you to do that, here. This local training program is updated with the latest regulations, every July. In fact, TOAST Academy training is very specific to Virginia regulations – and is a Virginia specific training course. We can provide this training on-site, as well, if you chose that route. The online training is only $29.95. Employees can choose BREW, TOAST, WINE and now we are offering Skill Game Alcohol Seller/Server training, too. All are VA ABC Authority certified and are written by former ABC Agents with the insider knowledge to make your staff compliant and knowledgeable about Virginia laws and policies.
