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.
General notes for all licences
If an annual licence is surrendered for cancellation, a pro-rata refund of the Part B fee will be made of the fee paid for each complete month, which remains unexpired, subject to the Council’s costs being covered. (The date of surrender will be deemed to be the date the licence is received by the Council).
