What are Under-Age Sales?

Everyone involved in sales from on-licensed and off-licensed premises should be aware of their obligations under the Licensing Act 2003 relating to the prevention of sales of alcohol to children.

It is essential that you keep within the law and have systems in place that will act as a 'due diligence' defence to an allegation that an underage sale of alcohol has taken place.  If you do sell alcohol to an individual who is under 18 you could be prosecuted and fined and your licence to sell alcohol could be at risk.
