Out-of-state Producer Application Kit (Series 02)

This non-transferrable liquor license allows an out-of-state producer, exporter, importer or rectifier to ship beer, wine and distilled spirits to an Arizona liquor-licensed wholesaler. An out-of-state producer or supplier may not sell its products to an Arizona wholesaler at a cost higher than the lowest price at which the item was sold by the producer or supplier to any other wholesaler.

Except for as permitted in A.R.S. §4-205.04(C)(9) through (G), Internet sale of liquor is not permitted in the state of Arizona. Liquor must be delivered to an Arizona liquor-licensed wholesaler, then an Arizona liquor-licensed retailer prior to delivery to the consumer.

Owner/agents of the Out-of-State Producer license are responsible for taxes per A.R.S. §4-112(B) and (C), A.R.S. §4-201(A)(5), A.R.S. §4-205.04(E) and (F), R19-1-305.

Arizona assumes that out-of-state applicants have completed fingerprint and background check process when being licensed in their state and there is no need for duplication. Applicants may select the types of ownerships listed in the application instructions and dismiss any language that references a bona fide Arizona resident or in the name of a designated agent that meets the requirements of an individual licensee.

Each U.S. state has a unique Federal ATF Permit # which is requested on this application. Countries outside of the U.S. may complete this section with "n/a" (not applicable).

ADDITIONAL RIGHTS AND RESPONSIBILITIES: An out-of-state producer, exporter, importer or rectifier must comply with the provisions of Title 4(Arizona liquor law) in the same manner as an in-state licensee. Violations of Title 4 may result in a fine or civil penalty and the suspension or revocation of the right to do business in Arizona.
