Whether you plan to open a pub, provide live music or other type of entertainment, have a cafe open late at night, or just plan to sell alcohol at your business, the UK’s Licensing Act of 2003 requires you to get a premises licence.
You must also apply for a premises licence in the UK if you plan to provide “licensable activities.” These activities include the retail sale of alcohol, regulated entertainment and late night refreshments. A premises licence not only covers a specific venue, but is also required for a vehicle, vessel or moveable structure.
The process of obtaining a premises license uk can be difficult if you do not know the ins and outs of the process. Also, if you don’t provide the proper documentation or fill out the form correctly, the premises licence process might be delayed. Luckily one of UK’s top training providers, Innpacked, can help you throughout the premises licence process.
When you apply for a premises licence, you must also assign a designated premises supervisor. This person is usually the person who has day-to-day responsibilities with running the business. This person must be named in the operating schedule. The operating schedule will be submitted with the premises licence application. The designated premises supervisor is also the primary contact for the police and other relevant authorities. In order to become a designated premises supervisor, the individual must have a personal licence, as well.
Innpacked can help you obtain your premises licence by guiding you through the application process. At Innpacked, the advisor can not only help you with a premises license, but also with a premises licence variation. If you currently have a premises license, but wish to amend it, Innpacked can help you submit the necessary changes.
If you plan to hold a special event in the UK that includes the sale of alcohol or regulated entertainment, you must contact the licensing authority. By notifying the authority with a Temporary Events Notice, you will be granted a temporary licence. Innpacked also provides the opportunity to protect your licence using their audit and licence protection system.
