You'll need to pay an annual fee for your premises licence. This fee will be due each year on the anniversary of the date your licence was first granted.
Annual fees are based on the non-domestic rateable value of the property and the fee will stay the same each year unless the rateable value of the property changes. You can find out more about how annual fees are calculated in our guide to licensing act fees.
We'll send you an invoice for the annual fee in the post around a month before the fee is due. The invoice will tell you the date by which you'll need to have paid the fee.
You can pay your annual fee online. You will be taken to our online payments page where you'll need to make a payment for sundry invoices. You will need to fill in the invoice number and amount payable. You can find all of these details on the invoice we sent you.
If you haven't had an invoice from us and you think your annual fee is due please telephone us and we will check this for you.
Any personal information which you provide will be held and used by East Devon District Council for the purpose of processing your annual fee payment and to administer any related premises licence. Your information may also be shared within East Devon District Council for the purposes of carrying out our lawful functions. Otherwise your personal information will not be disclosed to anybody outside East Devon District Council without your permission, unless there is a lawful reason to do so, for example disclosure is necessary for crime prevention or detection purposes. Your information will be held securely and will not be retained for any longer than is necessary. There are a number of rights available to you in relation to our use of your personal information, depending on the reason for processing. Further detail about our use of your personal information can be found in the relevant privacy notice
