June Following on our previous newsletter, Bolton Council have begun consultation on introducing the Late Night Levy. The consultation ends on 18 June 2023.
The proposal is for the Late Night Levy to be introduced on 1st January 2024.
The Late Night Levy, as you may be aware, is an additional annual fee that operators of licensed premises within the Council area must pay if their premises licence or club certificate authorises the sale of alcohol during a specified period between midnight and 6am. Bolton are proposing the late night supply period that would attract the levy will begin at 03:00 hours and end at 06:00 hours, subject to a limited number of exemptions.
The annual levy fee ranges from £299 a year for smaller businesses to £4,449 for larger business which are used exclusively or primarily for the sale of alcohol.
Further details on the proposal and how to respond to the consultation survey can be found on the council website here.
