Fees & Payments

The following fees were set by the Government on 21 January 2005. Please note that fees cannot be changed by the Council.

Fee bands

All premises are banded in to five categories, depending upon the non-domestic rateable value (business rates) of the premises:
  • A = £0-£4,300
  • B = £4,301-£33,000
  • C = £33,001-£87,000
  • D = £87,000-125,000
  • E = £125,001 and over

A multiplier charge is applied to premises in bands D and E, used exclusively or primarily for the supply of alcohol for consumption on the premises, when applying for the grant or variation of a premises licence. The multiplier charge does not apply to club premises certificates.

 

The fees relating to application for premises licences, club premises certificates, variations etc are graduated in these five bands.

Charges per band

The fee for a new, or variation to a, Premises Licence or Club Premises Certificate is as follows:
  • A = £100
  • B = £190
  • C = £315
  • D = £450 (multiplier x2 = £900)
  • E = £635 (multiplier x3 = £1905)

There will also be an annual charge payable to those holding Premises Licences and Club Premises Certificates, as follows:

  • A = £70
  • B = £180
  • C = £295
  • D = £320 (multiplier x2 = £640)
  • E = £350 (multiplier x3 = £1050)

 

Suspension of authorisations for non-payment

The Licensing Act 2003 requires the Council to suspend a premises licence or club premises certificate if the annual fee is not paid when it is due. However, there is a grace period of 21 days to address any dispute or potential error. If the dispute or error is not resolved during this 21 day period, the licence will be suspended.

 

The authorisation will only be reinstated when the outstanding fee has been paid. In the case of a licence or certificate where more than one payment year has been missed, payment of the outstanding fee in relation to each year will be required to reinstate the licence.
