The Gambling Commission have published guidance on the changes to regulatory returns that will be coming into effect from April 2018. The guidance can be accessed at this link.
The regulatory data consultation held in 2016, with responses published mid-2017, outlined the changes which will be made to regulatory return submission due from April 2018. Within the responses document, they made a commitment to publish the guidance ahead of when the changes are due to be implemented to give operators enough time to prepare for the changes.
The commission have taken into account the feedback provided by the responses on the need for clarification on some of the definitions, as well as the high demand for all guidance to be accessible in a collective form. The guidance for returns due to be submitted from April 2018 is now on their website and will be replicated in e-services from April.
