Licensing Act fees guidance

Licensing Act 2003 

Application and Miscellaneous Fees

These fees are contained in the Licensing Act 2003 (Fees) Regulations 2005. Premises initial, variation and annual fees are calculated on the rateable value of the premises concerned, not the business rates payable. Information as to rateable value can be obtained either from your National Non-Domestic Rates bill or from the Valuation Office Agency.

Table 1 deals with fees for new applications and variation of licences/certificates, the annual fees thereafter.

Fee Exemptions

There are limited exemptions in the legislation from the fees for premises licences for schools and colleges and church or community halls where the premises licence is restricted to regulated entertainment only.

For schools and colleges the exemption will only apply if the licensable activities are provided solely by the educational institution for that educational institution. The use of the premises for any other purpose (such as a hiring involving any licensable activity) will attract the fee. There are no exemptions to fees for Temporary Event Notices or for charitable activities or non-profit making activities.

 

Additional Fees

Additional fees are payable where a premises licence authorises large events. These will mostly be temporary or occasional events and may, for instance, be held wholly or mainly in the open air or in a moveable structure. Please see the Licensing Act 2003 (Fees) Regulations 2005, regulations 4(4) and 4(5) for further information.
