Small Society Lotteries

The Small Society Lotteries (Registration of Non-Commercial Societies) Regulations 2007 were laid on 8 August 2007 and will come into force on 1 September 2007 and will replace the Lotteries and Amusements Act 1976.

After 1 September 2007 all NEW applications for a lottery licence will have to pay an initial fee of £40 and £20 upon renewal.

If you hold an existing lotteries licence that expires on 31 December 2007 you will have to pay £20 for an application for a new small society lottery and £20 each year upon renewal.

These regulations deal with the procedure under which non-commercial societies wishing to run small fundraising lotteries must register with their local authority.

A small society lottery is one with proceeds of up to £20,000 (of which 20% must go to purposes for which the society is conducted), a maximum single prize of £25,000, and where the aggregate total of the lotteries promoted by the society in a year do not exceed £250,000. Regulations prescribe the application form and fees, and when the first annual fee must be paid.
