The cost of a premises licence application depends on your premises’ rateable value. You can find the rateable value on the GOV.UK website.
Premises that are exempt from non-domestic rating are allocated to Band A. Premises that do not have a national non-domestic rateable value because they under construction are allocated to Band C.
No fee is payable for an application for a premises licence if it is for the provision of regulated entertainment only and it is an application:
