In the UK, the clocks go forward by one hour at 01:00 on the last Sunday of March, this marks the start of British Summer Time. The clocks then go back by one hour at 02:00 on the last Sunday in October, marking the end of British Summer Time.
It is worthwhile reviewing your premises licence to establish whether the clock changes impact your business operations.
If you are licensed beyond 01:00 on the morning of the last Sunday of March, you will need to have a non-standard timing provision in your premise licence which extends your operational time by one hour when British Summer Time starts to ensure that you do not lose an hours’ trade.
If your premise licence does not have such a non-standard timing provision, you can apply for a temporary event notice or apply to amend your premises licence to include a non-standard timing provision.
If you are not licensed beyond 01:00, you do not need to do anything more than remembering to change your clocks.
