How much is the annual fee?

Gambling Act 2005 (2005 Act) casino

The first annual fee for a non-remote Gambling Act 2005 (2005 Act) casino operating licence will be due six months after the operating licence is issued to you. For the first year, and for this licence only, the annual fee will be reduced by 50%.

The subsequent annual fees for the non-remote Gambling Act 2005 (2005 Act) casino operating licence will be the amounts shown below, unless the holder of this licence is not yet operational. Where the licence holder is not operational, the annual fee will be reduced by 50%. We will consider a holder of this operating licence to have become operational twelve months before the planned opening date of its first 2005 Act casino premises.

The holder of the licence must therefore notify us of a date upon which they propose to commence trading from premises in respect of which a 2005 Act casino premises licence will have effect.

You must notify us three months prior to your annual fee due date to confirm whether your 2005 Act casino is operational so that the correct annual fee is charged. We will contact you in writing for this information.

Gambling Act 1968 (1968 Act) casino

The first year annual fee for a non-remote Gaming Act 1968 (1968 Act) casino operating licence only will be reduced by 25%. If you apply for a combination of diffferent operating licences, you will get a discount on your annual fee.

The first annual fee for all other casino operating licences is due 30 days after the licence is issued to you
