Less red tape on live music in pubs (UK)

From today, there will be less red tape on small businesses and venues that host live music events, announces BIS. Live unamplified music performed in any location, and live amplified music in on-licensed premises and workplaces for audiences of up to 200 people will no longer need a specific licence between 8am and 11pm.
Other changes to regulations applicable on 1 October include:
  • greater flexibility for small businesses to decide whether or not their company accounts should be audited.
  • more freedom for firms to determine the most appropriate set of accounting rules for them
  • Removing legislation that dictates the precise location and design of no smoking signs in workplaces
