Adding or removing someone from your operating licence (Schedule Y)

This guidance only applies to operating licensees who hold General betting (limited) and who qualify as a Small Scale Operator (SSO).

You can add an on-course representative to Schedule Y of your operating licence to allow them to accept bets on your behalf without your direct supervision. To add or remove people on your licence, you must submit a variation application using our variation application form and pay a fee.

The current fees are detailed on the making changes to your operating licence page.

Any individuals being added to your licence must submit an Annex A for approval.

When adding an on-course representative to take bets on your behalf you must supply a signed contract of employment showing the terms and conditions they are employed under with your variation application.

It takes around 8 weeks to consider and approve a person to be added to Schedule Y of your operating licence.
