How much does it cost?
Licence fees for financial year 2016 – 2017
When you apply for a new licence you will need to pay an application fee and an inspection fee. These costs are non-refundable whether your licence is granted or refused. When you renew your licence you will need to pay an annual renewal fee but there is no charge for any inspection that is required.
Fees are calculated according to the gross annual turnover of your business in the licensed sectors. The table below shows the different fee bands and associated costs.
|Fee band||Application or renewal fee||Inspection fee|
|£10 million or more||A||£2,600||£2,900|
|From £5 million to less than £10 million||B||£2,000||£2,400|
|From £1 million to less than £5 million||C||£1,200||£2,150|
|Less than £1 million||D||£400||£1,850|
How to pay
You can pay the fees by any of the following methods:
- BACS (Bankers Automated Clearing System)
- CHAPS (Clearing House Automated Payment System)
- Bankers draft
- FPS (Faster Payment Services)
- International credit transfers
We cannot accept credit or debit card payment.
The licence application and renewal fees are based on the turnover figure you submit for your business in the GLA regulated sectors. It is important that you make sure this figure is accurate. If you over declare your business turnover in your application you will not receive a refund at a later date. If you under declare your turnover you risk your application being refused or your licence being revoked.
Licence application, inspection and renewal fees are non-refundable if your application is refused or cancelled.
