Transfer applications to transfer an existing premises licence

Transfer applications to transfer an existing premises licence

If you wish to take over a premises licence either as an individual or company, you must first get consent from the existing licence holder to prove that they agree to the transfer. If you can’t get consent, you must provide a valid reason and proof as to why.

If you’re applying as an individual, you must also provide proof that you have the right to work in the UK and are not subject to a condition preventing you from doing work relating to the licensable activity – this is applicable to all individual applicants, including those born in the UK.
