Newbie needs help

Postby josh_phillips39 » Wed Feb 22, 2017 12:35 pm

Hey guys, completely new to this forum!

Just need some advice. I've had conflicting information provided to me via citizens advice and other online forums.

So my question is, do i need a pedlars licence if I'm selling a magazine door to door and on the streets?

Thanks in advance!! :) :)

Sounds like you are Peddling to me, and for £12 its not worth taking the risk.

so what about the rules on selling books? I've look at the definition of a book (see below)

1.
a written or printed work consisting of pages glued or sewn together along one side and bound in covers.
"a book of selected poems"
synonyms: volume, tome, work, printed work, publication, title, opus, treatise; More
2.
a bound set of blank sheets for writing in.
"an accounts book"
synonyms: notepad, notebook, pad, memo pad, exercise book, binder; More

so i assume a magazine comes under this? i could just say I'm selling books couldn't I?

Im not just trying to be cheap, we have a lot of homeless guys working for us, a lot with criminal records, which mean we can get everyone a pedlars licence.

If it is classified as a periodical and has the relevant registration numbers, then I dont think you need a pedlars certificate.

You can also sell it in any public space within the UK.
