Gambling duties: application to register for Gaming Duty (GD56)
Use the online service or the postal form to register for Gaming Duty.
To apply to be included in the Gaming Duty register, you can either:
- use the online form (sign in to, or set up a Government Gateway account)
- fill in the form on-screen, print it off and post it to HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC)
If you use the online form, you’ll get a reference number. You can use this to track the progress of your form.
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 can’t save a partly completed form so you should 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.
