Compliance Reporting

Compliance reporting is the required self-assessment that TABC-licensed businesses with locations in Texas must complete each year between Jan. 1 and March 31.

This report asks businesses to answer questions about their operations and, when requested, provide photos to ensure their location is following the laws that apply. The entire process is completed by accessing TABC's Alcohol Industry Management System (AIMS) using an Android or Apple device at the location for which the report is being conducted.

Who Must File a Compliance Report

Holders of BW, BB, BC, BE, BF, BG, BQ, D, G, MB, N, NB, NE, P, Q, W, and X licenses and permits.

How to File a Compliance Report

A compliance report must be completed at the location for which the report is being conducted. AIMS will prompt you to take photos with your mobile device and won't allow you to upload a photo you've taken before.

  • Using an Android or Apple device, open Google Chrome or Microsoft Edge
    • Do not use Apple’s Safari app — AIMS is not compatible.
    • Do not use any TABC mobile app — they are discontinued.
  • Log in to AIMS.
  • Select your business entity.
  • Click the Compliance Reporting tile. 

We’ve provided the video tutorials below to guide you through the process.

Preparing for Compliance Reporting

To prepare for the compliance reporting period:

  • New AIMS users must first create an AIMS account. Learn how on the How To Use AIMS page.
  • License holders who are first-time users of AIMS must also claim their business within the system — visit our How To Use AIMS page.
  • In the AIMS account associated with each business you represent, ensure that you or the person managing compliance reports for your business are labeled as a "Prime" user.
  • If you'd like others to complete your entity’s compliance reports on your behalf, identify the name and email of the person for each of your locations who will complete the compliance report. Once the reporting period opens every year, you'll need this information to add these individuals as users with compliance reporting permissions for each of their assigned locations.

You can also prepare for compliance reporting by making sure the business has proper signs posted in the correct locations. To learn more, visit the TABC Sign Requirements page.

When to File

The annual compliance reporting period runs from Jan. 1 to March 31 each year.
