Gambling Commission reviews upcoming licence fee proposals

Posted in Licensing | January 05, 2017 | by Dadds LLP Solicitors

The UK Gambling Commission has reviewed proposals for a new licence fee structure in April 2017, which it says will benefit the majority of operators.

The Commission posted a notice on its website detailing the findings of its consultation with the Department for Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) regarding its proposed license fee structure, which is set to take effect on April 6, 2017.

There will be fee reductions for around 1,900 operators while fees will be held at their current levels for around 1,000 operators, and around 75 operators will be subject to an increase in fees.

A total of 36 responses were received from trade associations, licensed gambling operators and from members of the public in the consultation. After considering these responses, DCMS and the Commission made a small number of amendments to the original proposals. These are detailed within a responses document.
