Small society lotteries must be registered with the local authority in the area where the principal office of the society is located.
What is a society lottery?
Society lotteries are promoted for the benefit of a non-commercial society. A society is non-commercial if it is established and conducted for:
- charitable purposes
- enabling participation in sport or a cultural activity (for example theatre)
- any non-commercial purpose other than that of private gain
A small society lottery:
- does not have proceeds that exceed £20,000 for a single draw
- does not have aggregated proceeds in excess of £250,000 in a calendar year
How to apply
- Read and retain the guidance notes
- Complete and return the registration form with the fee of £40 (cheques made payable to Broadland District Council)
Once your application has been received and approved a registration certificate will be issued to the promoter of the society.
