Personal Functional Licences – fee cut by 20%

08/08/2012

The Gambling Commission (the Commission) has confirmed a 20% reduction in personal maintenance licence fees from £185 to £145 for personal functional licence holders. The cut comes shortly before the first round of personal maintenance checks which begin this September.

The change has been made possible by the Commission’s progress in streamlining compliance and enforcement work with personal functional licence holders and introducing new IT systems. A key development will mean licence holders can complete their maintenance checks and other administrative tasks using the eServices-Personal facility  at www.gamblingcommission.gov.uk.

The new eServices-Personal facility has new features, added earlier this month, and all personal licence holders are being encouraged to register in advance of the first round of five-year maintenance checks.

“We have implemented new systems and ways of working in collaboration with the industry and are using the potential savings identified to bring down maintenance fees for personal functional licence holders.” said the Commission’s programme director for licensing and compliance, Sharon McNair.
