With the summer sporting season in full swing and England still in the World Cup, are you an employer that wants to extend access to viewing events on TV? Perhaps during lunchtime or after work or in public areas like reception? Did you realise this means that you may possibly need a TV licence in your business premises if you don’t currently have one?
Now, the rules on this are a bit complicated, but don’t tune out, bear with us for a moment!
You will need a TV licence for your business premises if staff, customers or visitors watch or record live TV programmes on any channel, or download or watch BBC programmes on iPlayer:
- on any device provided by or belonging to your business
- on their own devices that are plugged into your mains electricity
- on their own devices that are not plugged into your mains electricity if they are not covered by a licence at their home address.
