Another UAV licence price hike? Commercial drone fliers rage over consultation

3500 renewals per year = about 15 renewals per working day (or 0.5 hour per renewal).

A 40% increase on renewals would be about £50 x 3500 drone operators = a £175,000 increase.

IDK how long it takes to manually process renewals, or what their employees are paid, but for that money they could develop a website to process the renewal form online (is it fair to assume all drone operators have internet access?). They could then afford to cut the licence fee in future years.
