4 May 2016 – Nottingham’s Late Night Levy raises less than expected – 4 May 2016

A Freedom of Information Act request was recently made asking for details on the impact of the Late Night Levy in the year following its introduction.

When introduced the Council had estimated that the gross revenue raised in its first year would be £446,000.00.  The actual amount raised was said to be £294,834.00, 34% less than forecast.  Greater administrative costs than originally expected reduced this figure by a further £65,000.00.

It seems the main reason for the drop in revenue was due to the reduced number of premises paying the levy after the Council exempted premises in the Nottingham Business Improvement District.

131 premises also reduced their hours to avoid becoming liable to pay the Late Night Levy and 35 Licences were surrendered.The money raised has been used to fund Community Protection Officers responsible for reducing anti-social behaviour and alcohol-related crime and the Police have said their share will be partly used to fund the Street Pastor Scheme.

25 June 2014 – Introduction of the Late Night Levy in Nottingham

The Licensing Committee of Nottingham City Council has decided to introduce a Late Night Levy in Nottingham although importantly are exempting from payment those premises which fall within the City Centre Business Improvement District.

For those premises that attract the Late Night Levy which will apply from midnight, the annual payment will typically be £768.00 or £1,259.00.

Whilst New Years Eve has been exempted, if premises are open on any other day of the year after midnight they will become liable for the Late Night Levy if they fall outside the Business Improvement District.  Consequently, those premises which have on their Licence the right to trade after midnight, but they do not use those hours should consider making an application for a free minor variation to reduce the hours to midnight.

It is proposed that the Late Night Levy will be introduced with effect from 01 November 2014.
