HelpWhere a licence is shown as surrendered, this indicates that a licensee has notified the Commission that the licence is no longer required.
HelpThis applies to operators who wish to use remote platforms (for example, betting websites) to back or lay bets in the course of your business. If you use remote platforms simply to back or lay bets: either as part of running a betting shop - and so are also applying for a non-remote general betting (standard); or use them to back or lay bets as part of running an on-course bookmaking business - and so are also applying for a non-remote general betting (limited) operating licence. Find out more about types of betting licence.
HelpWhere a licence is shown as lapsed, this indicates that a business has been liquidated, sequestrated or declared bankrupt; or a licensee is unable to carry out the licensed activities by reason of mental or physical incapacity.
