Every individual who intends to sell alcoholic beverages in the UK must comply with the local sales licensing laws. Although the legislation might seem complex at a first glance, a consultant can simplify the process considerably.
Any entity that plans to sell alcohol in the UK needs a license for any beverage over 0.5% alcohol. Therefore, you need the Premises License to sell or deliver alcohol (even for online businesses) and a supervisor who should hold a Personal License.
What type of license do I need to market alcoholic beverages?
The type of license you need to commercialize alcohol mainly depends on the commercial purpose.
Premises license – a permanent license granted for a particular location, which authorises the holder to carry out one or all of the following activities:
- selling alcohol at specific locations;
- providing alcohol to a club of members and its guests.
Personal license – license granted to an individual who permits to sell or supply alcohol in an establishment.
Temporary Event Notice (TEN) – It is required if you wish to conduct an “authorised activity” in unlicensed spaces in England or Wales.

Depending on the specifics of your business and the logistics process, you will need several licenses and permits from the British Government. Our team will guide you through the entire process to ensure the required compliance standards.
In addition to consulting services, our team of experts can provide you with high-quality accounting services to scale your business efficiently.
How long is the Personal license valid?
Once you have received the license, it is valid indefinitely from the date it was issued and will become invalid only if it is revoked or suspended by the authorities.

- is revoked for violation of the regulations set out in the Act 2003
