Late night levy

We introduced the late night levy on 1 November 2017.

The levy allows us to raise revenue by charging everyone who’s authorised to sell alcohol between midnight and 6am.

If you hold a premises licenses or club premises certificates and you’re authorised to sell alcohol between 1 minute past midnight and 6am on one or more days in a year, you’ll be required to pay an additional annual fee.

The levy applies to all of Hackney.
