General Licensing Fees

The licence fee is made up of two parts. Part A covers the costs of processing the application and must be paid at the time of submitting an application. Part B is to cover the ongoing costs, for visits, enforcement and other costs not directly associated with the processing of the application and is payable if the licence is granted.

The Part A and Part B fees can be paid together at the beginning of the application process, and if the application is not granted the Part B fee will be refunded. Paying Part A and Part B together will ensure that as soon as the licence is granted the applicant can operate immediately.

If the Part B fee is not paid at the time the application is submitted it will be a condition of the licence (once granted) that the licence is not effective until such time as the Part B fee is paid.

When applying for a renewal, if the Part B fee is not paid at the time of the application, it must be paid within 7 days of notification of the application being granted, otherwise it will be a condition of the licence that the premises cannot operate under the licence until the Part B fee is paid.
