What form do I need to have a retailer complete before making a delivery to the retailer of liquor?
A general receipt such as the following may be appropriate:
I, (name of buyer), of (address of buyer), acknowledge having received and now accept (quantity) (units) of (type of goods) as full delivery of a total of (quantity) (units) purchased from (name of seller), of (address of seller), on (date of receipt), for (dollar amount of purchase price).
The Illinois Liquor Control Act of 1934 defines as retailer as a person who sells, or offers for sale, alcoholic liquor for use or consumption and not for resale in any form. This Act also provides as follows:
No person shall manufacture, bottle, blend, sell, barter, transport, transfer into this State from a point outside this State, deliver, furnish or possess any alcoholic liquor for beverage purposes, unless such person has been issued a license by the Commission(i.e., the Illinois Liquor Control Commission).
Such a retailer is required to obtain a retailer's license from the Commission. Therefore, you may want to add language in the receipt that the retailer acknowledges having such a license.
Also, you may wish to add language regarding the condition of the goods when accepted by the retailer.
