Do I need a licence?
There are three types of licence that business owners may need, and in certain situations, your business may need all three.
The three types of licence are:
- an operating licence (from us)
- a Personal Management Licence (from us)
- a Personal Functional Licence (from us)
- a premises licence (from your local licensing authority).
If you provide facilities for remote gambling (online or through other means), and advertise to consumers in Britain, you will need a licence from the Gambling Commission.
Local licensing authorities also provide lottery registrations and gambling permits for pubs, clubs and other establishments for low-level gambling.
