Renewals

Every year after the licence is issued an annual fee of £20 is payable. This must be paid within the period of two months prior to the anniversary of the registration otherwise the licence will be cancelled. An invoice for this will be sent out to the nominated contact person for your society and you will not have to fill in another application form. It is essential that you notify us of any change of details so that we send the invoice to the correct person.

Exempt lotteries

Other types of lotteries which fall into an exempt category are incidental non-commercial lotteries, a private society lottery, and a work lottery or a resident's lottery.
