Overview

A premises licence is required for any premises from which ‘licensable activities’ are conducted. Licensable activities are: the retail sale of alcohol (for consumption on or off the premises), the provision of regulated entertainment and late night refreshment. It is only if your premises include the retail sale of alcohol that you will also need to have one or more personal licence holders to supervise and authorise sales. Premises licence applications are made to the local council in whose area the premise is situated.

abv training:

  • Places advertisement of the application in local newspaper and provides you with the notice to be displayed on your premises.
