The annual fees for premises licences, authorising the sale by retail of alcohol both on and off the premises, some regulated entertainment and late night refreshment from 23.00 hours, are set by Government. The fees are collected by local licensing authorities.
The annual fees are still payable in full, as the Government has not made any change to the fees to compensate for the previous lockdown from March until July 2020, or further restrictions introduced since, regarding the COVID-19 pandemic. If annual fees are not paid by the due date of the invoices, the premises licence can be suspended.
