Be it Enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives in General Court convened:
II. Each holder of a beverage manufacturer license, beverage vendor license, brew pub license, nano brewery license, or wholesale distributor license shall immediately notify the commission of the receipt of the payment of any account which has been reported to the commission as delinquent. Post-dated checks beyond the 5-day reporting period shall not constitute payments of accounts for the purchases of beverages. Checks given in payment for beverages which are returned for nonpayment after the 5-day reporting period shall immediately constitute a delinquency and shall, upon return, be reported to the commission. Payments collected by agents shall be reported as delinquent unless actually received at the place of business of the holder of the beverage manufacturer license, beverage vendor license, brew pub license, nano brewery license, or wholesale distributor license on or before the fifth day of the reporting period. When collections are made by an agent, the sales slips or invoices shall be clearly marked with the name of the person making the collection and the date of such collection. Nothing in this section shall prohibit a licensee from making a payment by credit card, debit card, or other acceptable commercial means. Holders of a beverage manufacturer license, beverage vendor license, brew pub license, nano brewery license, or wholesale distributor license may add a transactional fee to the delinquent account when accepting a payment method that incurs a transactional fee. Nothing in this section shall require a beverage manufacturer licensee, beverage vendor licensee, brew pub licensee, nano brewery licensee, or wholesale distributor licensee to accept a credit card, debit card, or other acceptable commercial means.
