You'll need to apply for an auction registration if you intend to sell goods by competitive bidding from the following types of premises:
- halls, rooms, stalls, marquees, vehicles;
- sites which are used or hire out for "one day sales"; and
- any premises or land where goods are sold by auction
The registration is a one-off application and is valid indefinitely.
You can read The GLC (General Powers Act) 1984 here.
Applying for a licence
Once your application is submitted and paid for online it is automatically sent to the responsible authorities, so there is no need for applicants to send in paper hard copies.
A permit costs £670 per year.
Once your application is received, you may be contacted by a member of the licensing team to discuss your application.
