Fines unlimited!

The cap on the maximum fine that can be imposed for many licensing offences has been abolished. The Magistrates’ Court can now impose an unlimited fine in respect of certain offences under the Licensing Act 2003, including allowing the sale of alcohol to children, exposing alcohol for unauthorised sale and carry on unauthorised Licensable Activities.

It is now more important than ever to make sure that you are operating within the law and the terms of your licence.
