All fees are non-refundable whether you withdraw your application, your application is refused or that your licence is granted but you no longer wish to trade. The fees are set by government.
Premises licences and club premises certificates
Fees for these licences are based on the rateable value of the premises, and can be found on the Valuation Office website. Please note that the rateable value determines the fee, not the non-domestic rate band, which does not correspond with the licensing band set out below.
|Rateable value (£)
|New application fee (£)
|Up to 4,300
|4,300 - £33,000
|33,001 - £87,000
|87,000 - 125,000
|125,001 and above
If you do not have a rateable value for your premises, you will pay the band A fee at first. If, at a later stage, a rateable value has been set or altered within the consultation period, you will need to pay any differences. Any alterations to the rateable value will affect your annual maintenance fee.
In addition, a multiplier will be applied to establishments in town and city centres in bands D and E that are exclusively or primarily in the business of selling alcohol: band D (x 2) and band E (x 3).
