Any individual wishing to transfer an existing premises licence into their name must have the right to work in the United Kingdom, and produce documents with their application which demonstrates their entitlement to work in the UK.

If you wish to make a paper application you will need to complete 2 forms.

  • Application to Transfer a Premises Licence. This form must be completed by the new licence holder.
  • Consent to transfer the premises licence. This form must be completed by the outgoing premises licence holder.

These forms can be found on the website.

The premises licence and summary must be enclosed with the application to the licensing authority so that it can be amended. These must be the originals. If it is not possible to supply them, please include a statement of the reasons for the failure to provide the licence in part 2 of the form. You may be required to apply for a duplicate licence. The application forms must also be copied to the police licensing section.
