Make the most of trade-friendly moves
It may sound like a bad joke, but the slightly odd truth is that now isn’t the worst time to be thinking about your licence.
Obviously there’s next to no licensed trade happening, but if you can bring yourself to look a little way down the line – when customers are able to use pubs, clubs and restaurants again – a little pre-planning could go a long way to building your business back to where you’d like it to be.
Local authorities throughout England and Wales have been able to relax their restrictions on opening hours in order to help the licensing trade. Variations are also a lot easier to come by in the current climate as the word has come down from Westminster that councils should – quite rightly – do all they can to help the hospitality industry recover from the economic mess we’ve all been left in by the Covid-19 pandemic.
