Alcoholic Beverage Wholesaler Report

If you are an alcoholic beverage manufacturer, distributor or wholesaler licensed by the New Jersey Division of Alcoholic Beverage Control (ABC), you are required to file a report annually to reconcile your sales for the year. You must file this report even if you made no sales during the time period. If you do not provide this report, or the required information on the report, we may deny your request for renewal of your ABC license.

"Wholesale sales" are sales for resale.

Reporting period and due date

The reporting period covers the previous calendar year (January - December). The report is due by March 15 of the current calendar year.

What information to include on the report

You must include your wholesale name, taxpayer ID number, ABC license number, and the total number of retail sales you made during the year. If you did not make any sales for the entire year, enter zero in the "Sales to Retailers" column.

In addition, the report must contain the following information for each retailer who made purchases from you:

  • Retailer ABC license number;
  • Retailer name;
  • Trade name;
  • Street address;
  • Total annual sales to the retailer; and
  • Total monthly sales amounts to each retailer. For any month you did not have sales to the retailer, enter zero in the applicable field.
