Licensing – Annual Maintenance Fee

In line with advice and current measures taken by Government to limit the spread of coronavirus, the Licensing offices have closed to the general public, and all face-to-face appointments and drop-in sessions are cancelled until further notice. You may still contact the Technical Hub with any licensing enquiries by calling 01724 297000 or by email at licensing@northlincs.gov.uk

You may continue to make payments for applications or other fees via BACS, by posted check payable to ‘North Lincolnshire Council’ or via our online forms where available. As a replacement service for face-to-face appointments, for the time being you may also make payment over the phone.

Important Notice for Gambling permits and licences: Please note as per the requirements of the Gambling Act 2005, you are still required to make annual payments prior to the anniversary of the licence. Failure to do so may result in revocation of said licence.

We are continuously reviewing the situation and will adjust accordingly should the situation change.

Please refer to national guidance to ensure whether you are legally allowed to operate your business during the crisis, or if you are entitled to financial support.

You can pay your annual maintenance fee for the following here:

  • Premises Licences or Club Premises Certificates issued under the Licensing Act 2003
  • Lottery registration under the Gambling Act 2005

Each year a maintenance fee is due for premises licences or club premises certificates issued under the Licensing Act 2003 or premises licences and lotteries under the Gambling Act 2005 on the anniversary of the licence/registration.

We will send out renewal letters as a reminder of when the payment is due.

It is important to make payment as soon as possible, on or before the due date. If the annual fee is not paid when it is due we may suspend the licence or cancel the registration.

Should you wish to pay in-person, you may do this at the Licensing Payment Drop-In sessions at Church Square House at:

  • Mondays, 3.30pm to 4.30pm
  • Fridays, 10.30am to 12.00pm

Please note that cash payments cannot be taken and we cannot accept payment over the phone.

Fees & Charges

The fees for all licences can be found on our fee register

Fees for Premises Licences and Club Premises Certificates are determined by banding of the Non-Domestic Rateable Value (NDRV) of the premises. You can find the NDRV of the premises here. The payable fee for each band is set by the Licensing Act 2003 (Fees) Regulations 2005.
