Thread Name: A little more news on Licensing
Subject: RE: A little more news on Licensing
The annual inspection charge is due every year where a Premises Licence is in place. Whether entertainment permission is obtained or not, will make no difference to this.

It will go some way to replace the revenue from the current low-level magistrates alchol licence and the annual PEL (where these are in place). And as it comes from all places with Premises Licenses -instead of just the current 5% with PELs - even though the individual fee may be lower, this will be a lot of money comming in every year.

In most areas where the current PEL fees are set low - the figues proposed for the annual inspection charge should roughly work out the same. It is areas where the current fees are set too high - that may see a shortfall in their current revenue........
