Licence hire charges
As a beach hut tenant, you will receive 2 separate bills for letting an annual beach hut from us:
- BCP Council for the licence hire charge
- HM Revenue & Customs for non-domestic rates
You can choose to pay in full or monthly by direct debit over 6 months (January to June).
If you already pay by direct debit, the fees will be automatically paid from your account. However, your direct debit instruction will not cover payment of any non-domestic rates due on your beach hut. When you receive your rates bill, you will be advised how you can pay this (if applicable).
Licence instalment payments must be made on the due date or you will have to pay the full outstanding amount immediately or risk losing your beach hut licence.
HM Revenue & Customs individually rate beach huts (throughout the UK) for non-domestic rates. Beach hut tenants pay non-domestic rates separately, where these apply.
You may be able to reduce your bill, you can claim small business rate relief (SBRR), providing you do not pay business rates elsewhere. This will reduce the rates element of the beach hut hire by 100%. Instructions on how to apply for this reduction will be sent with your bill.
For all enquiries about your bills, please speak to Stour Valley and Poole Partnership:

Cancel your licence agreement
Beach Hut licences can only be terminated on 31 December. Applications to relinquish beach huts must therefore be received from licensees between 1 October and 30 November. Should you wish to cancel your licence agreement, please notify the Beach Hut Team by completing the cancellation notice form.
Licensees will continue to be liable for the Beach Hut rental fee until 31 December. Refunds for unused licence periods are no longer applicable.
