With exceptionally large events, where a permanent premises licence is obtained for a site rather than one that is time-limited for the event, the annual fee to be paid in relation to such a premises licence may also require an additional element charged at a rate of 50% of the additional fee listed above.

Premises under construction, without a non-domestic rateable value but due a value as soon as a completion certificate is given, will be allocated to band C. Subsequent annual fees will relate to the non-domestic rateable value given to the property.

Premises licences sought for community centres and some schools that permit regulated entertainment but do not permit the supply of alcohol and/or the provision of late night refreshment will not incur a fee.
