  • Premises

    You must attach an A4 size copy of the site plan of the premises. The plan needs to:

    • be accurate and complete
    • be drawn to scale
    • clearly describe and mark the area where the excisable goods will be stored
    • show all access points and security measures in place.

    The area to be licensed must be clearly outlined in red. This is where sales or storage must take place and is referred to as 'the establishment'.

    The plan must also clearly show the location of the building in relation to surrounding streets and adjoining buildings.

    Question 7

    If we've already issued an excise establishment number for these premises, enter that number in the space provided.

    If the premises aren't already licensed, we'll issue an excise establishment number with your licence.

    Question 8

    The name you give could be the common name used within your business to describe your premises. This will become your establishment name when we issue your licence.

    Question 10

    We may ask you to supply photos to support the details provided.

    Question 11

    The security standard we require is generally the same as the normal commercial standard. However, this can depend on the nature of the goods.

    We may ask you to supply photos to support the details provided.

    Question 12

    We need to know if you have right of possession and control over the premises.

    If you're the owner

    If you own the premises, we may ask for a copy of the certificate of title.

    If you're not the owner

    If you lease the premises, provide the name of the owner and details of:

    • all the parties to the lease
    • the period of the lease
    • if you have sole access to and control of the premises.

    If you're not the only person with access to and control of the premises, list all other people with access and control, and their terms of access.

    We may ask for a copy of the lease agreement.

    If you don’t have a lease, provide details of your arrangement with the owner, including:

    • the owner's name and contact details
    • the period of your arrangement
    • if you have sole access to and control of the premises.

    If you're not the only person with access to and control of the premises, list all other people with access and control, and their terms of access.
