The legislation regarding lotteries is covered by the Gambling Act 2005.
There are several sorts of lotteries - but the one we are concerned with here is a Small Society Lottery.
To qualify it must be:
- Promoted for a non-commercial society
- Be a small society (the proceeds must be less than £20,000).
To promote a Small Society Lottery, the society must first register with us. There is a fee of £40 to register and an annual renewal fee of £20. You will be informed before the renewal date that the renewal fee is due.
After the completion of every lottery the society should send a completed form to us.
Here's a list of documents and forms that will be of assistance to societies wishing to promote fund raising lotteries:
