How do they pay for dances?
its by a application on their mobile, where they buy credit and then can use that credit on the bus. So no actual cash is exchanged hands, they have to deposit a certain amount of deposit before they get on and then they can draw down on that, dependent on how long they are on the bus, once it runs out they get off the bus.we can work it two ways, whichever is the best. First they pay by the hour to get on, no actual restriction on number of dances, the second is a basic amount to get on and then they draw down on their credit while they are there. does that make sense?
You will need a licence because lap dancing is a controlled matter and regardless of whether or not cash changes hand, they are paying for it.
Therefore you will need a licence because this is for gain or reward.
It does not have to be cash, but clearly they have to pay for the dances so a licence will be needed.
This is in effect a sex establishment licence.
It makes no difference to the fact it is on a bus.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
If you the client is only paying for the bus and any entertainment on that bus is free, is it still classed the same?
Its not free though, is it.
They are paying for dances, even if via an app
the entertainment is but the bus hire no.
But the entertainment is not free.
Its included in the price
The girls are not working for free
yes this is correct
They buy credit and that is used on the bus - so that is the same as paying
bit could we not say entertainment is free, or is this just not feasible?
But its not though.
You are likely to end up in Court - which will cost you a lot more
So, if we have to get a licence, we would have to be licensed in every country we go to?
That you would probably need to check with the Local Authority concerned.
It may be that one licence is enough.
Or you may be required to have a temporary licence in each County.
Who would I approach to find out about that
The Licencing Department of the Council
But I think it is more likely to be a temporary licence every time you go.
Or it may be a licence which permits x days in an area in a year
I understand the temp license, 12 events per year not exceeding 24 hours
ok thank you, XXXXX XXXXX else
Yes that may cover you.
