Licensing Management Services
We manage a wide range of licensing requirements for a number of major supermarket operators, major national retailers, national health club chains, pub companies and cinema operators, so we know a thing or two about managing large licensed estates. We offer a retainer based management service whereby we can deal with as little or as much as you need us to.
As part of our managed service we ensure you remain 100% compliant at all times by helping you to manage all or some of your day to day requirements in relation to your alcohol licences. We can deal with all issues relating to the Licensing Act 2003 as well as the Licensing (Scotland) Act 2005 including premises licences, personal licences as well as all associated ancillary licences.
For operators with large estates, you’ll also have access to our bespoke licensing management software as well as a range of in-depth reporting services, so you can still maintain a hands-on approach to managing a fully compliant licensing regime for your business.
Licensing Act 2003
We deal with all applications under the Licensing Act 2003 – from changing designated premises supervisors to contested applications for new premises licences.
Our experienced licensing department is also experienced in representing interested parties, making appeals to the magistrates’ courts and advising on applications for judicial review.
