Please NOTE: Please pay the application fee associated with the type of Licence you are applying for first. The Compliance fees are paid after the inspection is completed and the length of the licence is determined.

Where an animal welfare premises conducts more than one licensable activity on the same licence, only one initial application fee will be payable. However, this will consist of the highest activity application fee combined with the additional activity fee.

For example, a premises that breeds dogs and sells animals as pets will pay £245.00 (£200.00 + £45.00) upon initial application, plus the additional compliance fees depending on which star rating has been achieved after the first inspection.

Where the 2018 regulations require inspection of a premises by a veterinarian, the full cost of that inspection is payable by the premises licence holder/applicant in addition to the figures in the table above.
