NEW UK Firearms and Shotgun Certificate / License Fees

New UK Shotgun and Firearms Certificate ( FAC ) fees effective from 6th April 2015.

  • The cost of a firearms certificate now £88.00;
  • The cost of a shotgun certificate now £79.50;
  • Renewal of a firearms certificate now £62.00;
  • Renewal of a shotgun certificate now cost £49.00;

Save money by applying for your FAC and SGC at the same time. Just complete both forms for your Firearms and Shotgun certificate in the normal way and post them together with the reduced fee of £90 for both certificates saving £77.50 or renew both together for £65 saving £46.

Hopefully the new fees will help Dorset, Hampshire and other Police firearms licensing departments process applications and variations faster.
