14B NCAC 15B .0108       ILLEGAL USE OF PERMITS: CHANGE OF OWNERSHIP OR NAME

(a)  No permittee shall allow any other person to use his permit to operate the licensed premises after disposing of his financial interest in the licensed premises.

(b)  A permittee shall not pay any profits derived from the operation of the licensed business to any person who neither owns a financial interest in the business nor performs a service for the business. This restriction shall not, however, prohibit a permittee from entering into a lease by which the landlord is entitled to a percentage of receipts in lieu of or in addition to a periodic rent payment.

(c)  Change in Ownership.  A permit shall automatically terminate whenever any change in the ownership of the business, as provided in G.S. 18B‑903(c) occurs.  Permits issued for a business in which a change of ownership has occurred shall be returned to the Commission or delivered to the State ALE agent assigned to the area.

(d)  Change in Name.  When the permittee's name or name of business is changed, the permittee shall apply to the Commission for duplicate permits in accordance with G.S. 18B‑903(g).
