Section 1 - Identity of individual applicant and/or nominated contact for business applicant

Individual applicant

If you are an individual applicant, you must answer all questions in section 1. Section 1 is where you provide the Gambling Commission with the information we need to confirm your identity.

It is particularly important that you provide the Commission with details of all your home addresses in the last five years. You must give the Commission a United Kingdom (UK) address to which we can issue a permit, if your home address is abroad. All correspondence relating to the application will be issued to the UK address.

Question 1

Q1. Applicant details if you are an individual or name of the designated contact responsible for this application if applicant is a business, entity or other. You must provide an email address in answer to this question as all future correspondence will be sent via email.

Provide your personal details including name, address, other contact details and your date of birth. If you do not have a passport or driving licence please state N/A.

The occupancy status refers to the capacity by which you occupy the premises such as owner, joint owner, living with parents or renting. You should provide a home and/or personal phone number wherever possible. Also provide details of your place of birth and nationality.

Question 2

Q2. If an individual applicant, have you ever been known by another name (including name changes and previous name)?

Indicate if you have ever been known by another name including any previous names or aliases. If yes, please state the name in full and the dates that you were known by this name.

Provide details of any current other home addresses (such as second homes) and all of your home addresses in the last five years.

Applicant is an entity, business or other

Only answer questions 1a to 1I in this section. All other questions in Section 1 are only relevant if you are an individual applicant.

This is an administrative section and will have no bearing on the application.

The nominated person will be the contact for all correspondence relating to this application. A UK-based address must be given. This address will also be the address to which all correspondence relating to the application and any permit that may be issued will be sent. For businesses based abroad you may use a UK-based solicitor or other UK-based representatives.
