It covers important areas such as whether you can charge a guest if they don’t turn up, whether you need music and film copyright licences and guidance on marketing your business within regulations. You can also learn about your statutory obligations regarding health and safety.

If you are a member of VisitEngland’s National Quality Assessment Scheme for accommodation you will receive your complimentary copy at your next assessment.
