Licensing (Scotland) Act 2005

Section 49 – Licensing Board’s duty to update premises licence

106.This section is intended to ensure that the information contained in the premises licence is kept up-to-date. Subsection (1) requires the Licensing Board to make the appropriate changes to the information in the licence when it receives the notices of change of name or address and when it varies, transfers, confirms or reviews a premises licence. This ensures that there is always an accurate record of the licence.

107.In most cases the Licensing Board will have been sent the appropriate licence, but subsections (3) and (4) provide that the Board may require a holder to produce their licence within 14 days. Subsection (5) provides that failure to do so without reasonable excuse will be an offence.
