Nicola Smith has authored these practice notes in partnership with LexisPSL.
This Practice Note aims to provide practical guidance to those working within a local authority in England or Wales to deal with licensing fees and levies. Local authorities can, of course, be required to administer a range of licences or approvals, from licences for the sale of alcohol and the provision of regulated entertainment, to taxi licences, or licences for street trading.
This Practice Note is not intended to provide detailed advice on the setting and/or recovery of fees under every licence regime, but will give broad guidance on the key issues for consideration.
These practice notes were first published on LexisPSL and have been reproduced with their permission.
