You can surrender your licence at any time if you no longer want to use the premises as a sex establishment.

How to surrender

You can apply online. You'll need to give:

  • the date of surrender
  • an explanation about why the licence is no longer needed
  • any other information we should be aware of in connection with the surrendering of the licence
  • the name of the premises and the licence number

You'll need to tell us the date on which you want to surrender the licence

Please return your sex establishment licence to us in the post or give an explanation as to why it cannot be returned.


Only the licence holder or an agent of the licence holder can surrender the licence.
