l) Segmental reporting

The Gambling Commission operates in three distinct material segments:

  • to regulate commercial gambling
  • to regulate the current National Lottery
  • to commission the fourth National Lottery.

All three segments fall within one main geographical segment, United Kingdom (UK). The Commission has distinct sources of income for the three segments: licence fees for gambling regulation, Grant-in-Aid (GIA) for National Lottery regulation, and National Lottery Commissioning. Each segment is accounted for separately within the procurement and finance systems with the exception of cross charges.

Staff and non-staff cross charges are calculated as part of the budget (Business priorities) process, costs are approved by the Executive Team and recognised monthly in the Financial Accounts. The segmental reporting format in Note 3 - Statement of operating costs by operating segment, reflects the Commission's management and internal reporting structure.
