Coronavirus – Understanding off sales

Information and Q&A's in relation to off sales and impact of Covid-19 regulations

Over recent weeks we have seen the hospitality industry face the unprecedented challenges of closure but we have also seen some premises making use of their off sales provisions and offer food and drinks to customers for collection and delivery. This is becoming more popular and while in theory this is a simple offer – in practice this has caused confusion for many and challenges to premises as to how they are operating.

As such this information document and following questions and answers has been developed by a cross sector group looking to reduce risk for licensed premises operating during the current pandemic and so ensure the safety of the public, premises staff and officers and provide clarity for all involved. The focus has been the impact of the Covid-19 regulations on licensed premises providing off sales.
