The UK Gambling Commission (UKGC) has announced a temporary extension of regulatory return submissions dates.
On feedback from operators and trade bodies, the UKGC has decided to allow operators an additional four weeks (28 days) to submit their regulatory returns.
For annual returns, UKGC extended the window to submit returns from 42 days to 70 days. If year-end is in line with the UK financial year (1 April 2019 to 31 March 2020) operators need to submit by 9 June 2020.
For quarterly returns, the commission extended the window to submit returns from 28 days to 56 days. If quarter-end is in line with UK financial quarters (1 January 2020 to 31 March 2020) operators need to submit by 26 May 2020.
The extended submission times will be applied to all returns due before 30 June 2020. Prior to that point, UKGC will review the situation.
