SUPPORTING YOU AND
YOUR LICENSED BUSINESS

supporting the business interests of the
self-employed licensees in the licensed trade

Welcome to the Federation of Licensed Victuallers Associations (FLVA). The FLVA is a members’ organisation looking after the business interests of self-employed licensees in the licensed trade. The licensed trade can be a minefield and licensees can feel as though they are being hit from all sides: customers, suppliers, local council, the media, you name it, there always seems to be someone knocking at their door.

This is where the FLVA comes in. We have been operating for 20 years this year and offer advice, help and assistance 365 days a year in all areas affecting self employed licensees. The FLVA brings numerous benefits to its members, all of which are included in the annual membership fee. Details of the FLVA’s services are included within this web site.
