Please see the following message and weblink received yesterday from the Home Office in respect of new fee levels for clubs, museums, dealers, carriers etc.

Derek Stimpson

"The Home Office has today (18/06/2019) published its response to a consultation on fees for firearms licences administered by the Home Office and Scottish Ministers. (Licences for prohibited firearms; museums with firearms collections; and approved target shooting clubs). The Government introduced a power to set the fees in the Crime and Policing Act 2017 and held a public consultation on detailed proposals from 12 January 2017 to 9 March 2017. The fee levels announced today are in most cases the same as those set out in the letter of 3 April 2018 from Nick Hunt, Head of the Serious Violence Unit, to shooting organisations who had taken part in the “Roundtable” discussions following the consultation.

In the case of museums, the Government has opted to maintain the current fee level of £200 for the first grant and renewal of a museum licence. In addition, museums that hold museum firearms licences will not be subject to any fee payable to the Home Office or Scottish Government in respect of section 5 dealer licences."
