Premises Licence Fees

Please see the application fees document for details of premises licence fees.

The Government has used the non-domestic rateable value (NDRV) as the means of allocating premises to fee bands. NDRV is considered the fairest method of allocating fee bands because it:

  • Appears fair in ensuring that larger premises pay more than smaller businesses

  • Is an indicator of business size and turnover

  • Takes into account the location of the business

  • Reflects higher overheads falling on local authorities in certain areas

  • Is reviewed regularly

Particular types of premises which do not have non-domestic rateable values are allocated to Band A.

New NDRVs for all premises come into force on 1 April 2010. You can check your current and new non-domestic rateable value at the Valuation Office Agency website.

The annual fee for premises licences and club premises certificates will become due and payable each year on the anniversary of the date of the grant of the licence or certificate.
