If there is living accommodation on the premises where a TV is also in use, this must be covered by a separate licence. Those without a valid licence are breaking the law and run the risk of a court prosecution and fine of up to £1,000 per offence, plus costs.
Businesses found guilty are also required to buy a TV Licence at £145.50, or they could face a second prosecution.
