‘The Licensing Act 2003 (the 2003 Act) regulates the sale of alcohol, the provision of late night refreshment and regulated entertainment in England and Wales, and is primarily administered by local authorities, acting in their capacity as licensing authorities. Licensing fees are intended to recover the costs that licensing authorities incur in carrying out these licensing functions. Licensing fees are payable to licensing authorities by holders of licences and certificates, and those making applications or issuing notices. This can include, for example, pubs, shops, restaurants and private members’ clubs (such as working men’s clubs).’
