Pay your annual licence fee
How and when to pay your annual licencing fees
To keep your licence(s) valid, you will need to pay an annual fee once a year, on the anniversary date of when your licence was granted.
You can find the anniversary date on the decision notice that was sent with your licence.
A reminder letter will be sent out to you one month before the due date.
How much are the Licence fees?
Premises licence annual fees
The amount you pay is based on the rateable value of the premises. Premises that don't have a rateable value are in Band A for premises licences purposes.
The rateable value is set by the valuation office. The Non Domestic Rateable Value (NDRV) of any premises can be checked at GOV.UK - Valuation Office Agency (VOA).
There is a multiplier applied to premises in Bands D ( x 2 basic fee) and E ( x 3 basic fee) where they are exclusively or primarily in the business of supplying alcohol.
Please note: All fees are set by the government and cannot be altered by us.
|Non-domestic rateable value band||BAND||Annual fee||Multiplier|
|£0 - £4,300||A||£70||0|
|£4,301 - £33,000||B||£180||0|
|£33,001 - £87,000||C||£295||0|
|£87,001 - £125,000||D||£320||£640|
