How can track bookmakers work out the fees applicable for their operator licence application and annual fee?
If you are a track bookmaker and are applying for a general
betting (limited) operating licence, the Gambling Commission asks
you to estimate the number of days you and your representatives
work on-course in order to calculate the application and annual fee
that you will need to pay.
If you operate exclusively at tracks you should include all
person days planned at any kind of track, for example if:
- you and your nominated representative both
plan to attend two meetings, each on the same day
(four meetings in all for the operator
that day) this would count as two days
worked (two person days)
- you and your nominated representatives attend separate pitches
at the same track, however the pitches are linked and thereby
controlled by you this would count as a single day worked
(one person day)
- you and your nominated representative attend
separate unlinked pitches at the same track this would count as two
days worked (two person
We need to know the person days you and
your representatives will work, irrespective of how many tracks you
visit in a day.
