Legal, HR, Employment, Licensing & Tax Advice:

This is FREE to BII Members and, with the exception of the tax section, is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, providing advice in the following areas: 

General Legal

In this area we provide guidance on a wide range of private and business law issues including:

Disputes with contractors, issues relating to pubs using foreign decoders to air Premier league football matches, mis-sold advertising, road closures, disputes with your landlord, health and safety issues or even personal issues like divorce.


Stuck filling out Premises Licence application? Or want to appeal a review or renew your 10-year Personal Licence?

These are some examples of where we can provide advice when it comes to day-to-day licensing queries. The helpline can also assist in emergency situations, for example, your premises being put under threat of closure or the police arriving to attend an incident in the wee hours.

HR & Employment Law

We can help with employment disputes, contract issues, disciplinary and grievance procedures, TUPE obligations, and any other employment or HR issue you might have. 

You can call as many times as you need.

Employment tax

For queries regarding your employees, covering issues such as; the correct tax and national insurance deductions required through payroll, which expenses can be claimed as genuine business expenses, employee benefits, termination/redundancy payments, engaging contractors, staff gifts and staff entertaining.

For BII Members we provide high level assistance by phone for up to 30 minutes as part of your membership. Should you require more detailed advice, this can be provided for an agreed fee.
