Liquor License Renewal Information

Stop Sign

Before you click the button below to renew your license online, you must read the following instructions:

The renewal portal works best on a desktop or laptop computer.  We do not recommend using a phone or tablet to access the portal.

Online Renewal Portal Accepts Electronic Funds Transfers (EFT) or Credit Cards
The online renewal portal accepts electronic funds transfers (EFT) from your bank account or payments using credit cards (Visa, Master Card, or Discover) - American Express is not accepted at this time).

If you are renewing several licenses in separate transactions and the renewal fee amount is the exact same for each license, you need to allow five (5) minutes between transactions of the same amount when using the same credit card or EFT.  If you do not wait 5 minutes between payments, the portal will flag the payment as a possible duplicate payment.

If You Used the Online Renewal Portal in 2019-2023...
If you used the online renewal portal in 2019-2023 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 in a prior 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, 2020, 2021, or 2022, 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.


Print Your Own Renewed License

Beginning April 1, licenses renewed online and licenses renewed by mail that have been processed by the MLCC will be available to be printed from the renewal portal.  Licensees may print active licenses, but truck decals, Banquet Facility Permits, Farmer's Market Permits, and Secondary Location Permits cannot be printed from the portal.  Also, escrowed licenses cannot be printed (escrowed licenses do not receive a license document).  Any renewal application that requires further review by the MLCC will not be available to print from the portal.  You may read the instructions for printing a license by clicking here and the instructions are also located under the "Print My License" tab in the renewal portal that you access by clicking the button below.


Now that you have read these instructions, you may press the renewal button below to start your renewal:
