Introduction

This section provides guidance to holders of gambling operating licensees on our requirement for them to give us any information we ask for, in a way that we may specify.

We also explain our requirement for operators to submit regulatory returns and explain how this must be done.

Licence condition 15.3.1

General and regulatory returns

All operating licences

On request, licensees must provide the Commission with such information as the Commission may require, in such form or manner as the Commission may from time to time specify, about the use made of facilities provided in accordance with this licence, and the manner in which gambling authorised by this licence and the licensee’s business in relation to that gambling are carried on.

In particular, within 28 days of the end of each quarterly period or, for those only submitting annual returns, within 42 days of the end of each annual period, licensees must submit an accurate Regulatory Return to the Commission containing such information as the Commission may from time to time specify.

Your company must give us any information we ask for, in the way we specify, about how:

  • the gambling facilities it provides under this licence are used,

  • gambling authorised by this licence is carried out, and

  • how their business relating to that gambling is run.

If we request such information, we will explain what we require and how you must provide the information to us.

As part of this requirement, we require operating licence holders to send us a regulatory return on a quarterly or annual basis, depending on their licence type.

Quarterly returns are to be submitted within 28 days of the end of the reporting period, while annual returns are due within 42 days of the end of each annual period.

Regulatory returns need to be submitted via our online regulatory returns system within the eServices digital service (opens in a new tab). Regulatory returns guidance is available throughout the system and on our website.

This reporting requirement applies to holders of all operating licences.
