Online Renewal Portal Only Accepts Electronic Funds Transfers (EFT)
The online renewal portal can accept payment only from electronic funds transfers (EFT) and cannot accept payment by credit card. If you wish to pay via credit card (Visa, Master Card, or Discover), you may do so by using the Credit Card Authorization (LCC-300) and faxing your credit card payment and renewal invoice to LARA Revenue Services at 517-284-8557. In-person payments by cash, check, or credit card (Visa, Master Card, or Discover) may be made at the LARA Revenue Services Cashier's Office BY APPOINTMENT ONLY - click here to schedule an appointment.
If You Used the Online Renewal Portal in 2019 or 2020
If you used the online renewal portal in 2019 or 2020 to renew your license, you do not need to register your email again as described in Step 1 below. You will use the same username and password you set up last year; however, the online renewal portal will ask you to create a new password once you attempt to log in for the first time this year. Also, you will not need to add accounts to renew as described in Step 2 below unless you added a new business location under a different licensee name that was not licensed during renewal last year. If you did add a new business under a different licensee name since renewal last year, then after logging in you will need to follow Step 2 to add that license account to your renewal.
Registering New Account
Step 1 - Register for the Online Renewal Portal
When you click the renewal button below, you will be directed to a login page. If you did not renew online in 2019 or 2020, you will need to click the "Register" button (see screenshot below), which will take you to a page where you will input some information to set up a new renewal account. Once you have submitted that information, you will receive a confirmation email that will allow you to set up a password. Some email programs or services are flagging emails from the renewal portal as spam or blocking them. Please add MLCCLicensingRenewals@michigan.gov to your trusted email list in your email program so that the password email and payment receipt are not blocked by your system.
Please note that your existing Online Liquor Ordering (OLO) password or Michigan Wholesale Product Registry (MWPR) password will not work for this login, though you may use the same email address and a similar password if you choose to do so when you are registering for the online renewal portal.
Step 2 - Add an Account to Renew
Once you have registered you will be redirected to the online renewal portal. Before you can renew you will have to add an account to renew. You will need to click the "Add Account" and a new page will open where you will enter the Business ID (BID) number and PIN provided to you on the physical renewal application you will receive in the mail. If you have not received the physical renewal application in the mail, you will not be able to complete this part of the process because you will not have your BID number and PIN. The page to enter the BID number and PIN will look like this:
The BID number and PIN on the physical renewal application you will receive in the mail will be located on the instruction page of the renewal application at the bottom right corner and will be labeled "Master BID" and "Master PIN":
If you have more than one licensed location, you will need to add each of them using the steps above. Once you have added your license or licenses to the account, the "Renew My License" button will appear. Follow the instructions on the online renewal portal to renew one or all of you licenses together.
Some email programs or services are flagging emails from the renewal portal as spam or blocking them. Please add MLCCLicensingRenewals@michigan.gov to your trusted email list in your email program so that the password email and payment receipt are not blocked by your system.
