What happens if you need to move after getting the federal permit?


Recommended Posts

I saw a post on the forum somewhere but can't find it. It mentioned someone who started in a small place, got the federal permit, then moved to a bigger place and transferred/amended the permit to the new location. In this case it sounded like it was planned that way. Whether you have to move because you must or if you planned to is it difficult to amend or transfer the federal permit? How is it done? Thanks!

Dave Dunbar did the paperwork for us. It went through pretty quickly. You have 60 days to move bondable materials & equipment to the new location. You will probably will need to deal with state issues. It's like redoing your initial license but it is faster, doesn't require the personal financial stuff, and there's generally no issues getting it approved.

We moved after about 3 years and it wasn't so bad. The only issue was getting the lease dates and the TTB to line up properly so we weren't pissing away $15,000 in rent for the "maybe it will be this month?" wait when it comes to applying for the initial, or amending a DSP.  I think ours took about 50 days and a lot of phone calls during the last week.

You can't begin operations at the new location until TTB approves the application for that location.  If you do not want a disruption, you need to apply well in advance and ask TTB to grant you 60 days to make the move, during which time you want to conduct operations at both locations under the same permit and registration.  You can also qualify the new location as a discontinuous premises to the first, then curtail the first premises after approval.  Just plan ahead.
