Licensing fees

Licensing fees

Applications for new/variation premises licences or club premises certificates are based on the non-domestic rateable value (or business rate band) for the property.

This is fixed by the Valuation Office Agency (VOA). The rateable value is equal to the annual rental value of the property on 1st April 2008, although this did not come into effect until 1st April 2010. Rateable values are usually reassessed every 5 years, but the 2015 revaluation has been postponed to 2017.

You can check the rateable value of your property on the Valuation Office website.

Alternatively, you can find out your non domestic rateable value from your non-domestic rate bill.

If your premises does not have a non-domestic rateable value, then it automatically falls into Band A.

Except in a case where a premises is in the course of construction, in which case the premises shall be in Band C, in all other cases, the premises shall be in Band A.

Application and annual fees 

You will need to pay an annual fee for your licence. You will receive an invoice from us when the fee is due.
