Apply by post


To apply to be included in the Gaming Duty register, you can either:

  • use the online form
  • fill in the form on-screen, print it off and post it to HMRC

To apply online you need a Government Gateway user ID and password. If you do not have a user ID, you can create one when you apply.

Email HMRC to ask for this form in Welsh (Cymraeg).

Before you start using the postal form

If you’re using an older browser, such as Internet Explorer 8, you’ll need to update it or use a different browser. Find out more about browsers.

You’ll need to fill in the form fully before you can print it. You cannot save a partly completed form so gather all your information together before you start to fill it in.

HMRC must have your application at least 14 days before you start business.

If you’re applying on behalf of a group registration, only the representative member of that group registration can fill in this form.
