Transfer of premises licence holder

If you wish to take over a premises licence from its current licence holder, you will need to apply for a transfer.

Apply

The transfer fee is £23 and you need to send us: 

  • a completed transfer application form 
  • a consent form from the current licence holder or a statement explaining why it is not included (see ‘Useful documents’, below)
  • a copy of the current premises licence or a statement explaining why it’s not included. 

You need to send a copy of the application and the documents to the police and the Home Office (we will do this on your behalf if you send your application by email or online).

You can apply online via the GOV.UK website.
