Did you know that since May 1st of this year, businesses with TABC-licensed and/or permitted locations in Texas have been able to conduct a voluntary compliance report of their Texas premises by using the Alcohol Industry Management System (AIMS) ?
In a game-changing move that will help revolutionize the way businesses handle annual compliance reporting, the TABC has introduced AIMS. With its user-friendly interface and cutting edge features, AIMS offers an efficient and streamlined approach to compliance reporting. Businesses will now have the ability to conduct and file their annual reports by picking up their mobile device, opening either Google Chrome or Microsoft Edge app, and logging into AIMS — which serves as the exact online system utilized by businesses to manage applications, licenses, excise taxes etc. The compliance reports will ask users a series of questions and then prompt them to record images which will confirm that they are following the applicable laws for their businesses.
