Licensing fees and paying annual invoices online

Licensing fees

Some fees are set by statute and those fees cannot be amended by the council; however, the council is responsible for setting other fees to cover processing and determination of applications as well as ensuring compliance with the relevant licensing regime.

The council reviews the fees that it can set at regular intervals to ensure that the fee being charged recovers the cost of the application process and ensuring compliance.
