Gold Licences for businesses

Published: Wednesday, 04 August 2010

BRITISH Waterways and the Environment Agency have created a Gold Leisure Business Licence for business licenced boats visiting both BW and EA waters.

Susie Mercer, from BW's boating trade team, comments:

"We know that for private pleasure boaters a Gold Licence can be far more economical than separate licences from the different navigation authorities. I am pleased to say that the new arrangement simply brings this into line for our leisure business customers too."

Those wishing to apply for a new Gold Leisure Business Licence should fill out the standard Gold Licence application form (available for download from the BW website) but marking it Gold Leisure Business Licence at the top. They should multiply the cost of the private pleasure Gold Licence by 2.1 for the business rate.
