Licensing Fees 13th February 2020 Civic Suite, Huntingdonshire District Council, Pathfinder House, St Mary's Street, Huntingdon PE29 3TN Eastern
Members Fee: £160.00 + VAT

Leo Charalambides and Ben Williams, Kings Chambers will be delivering this one day training course on Licensing Fees at Huntingdonshire District Council.
There exists a significant amount of confusion as to how taxi licence fees are to be lawfully calculated. A large question mark currently exists over whether enforcement fees are to be included at all following the High Court judgment in Rehman v Wakefield Council. As that matter proceeds to the Court of Appeal we ask the question as to what may be lawfully included in the calculations of fees, on which licence such fees are to be incorporated into and what the rules are generally about setting fees. We will also look to some general principles around other licensing regimes and the associated fees.
IoL Members: £160 + VAT
Non Members: £210 + VAT
