This Order which extends to Scotland only sets fees to be charged in relation to the grant, renewal and transfer of gaming licences in Scotland.

The Order decreases the fees to be charged in relation to the grant and transfer of gaming licences and increases the fees to be charged in relation to the renewal of gaming licences where gaming is restricted to the playing of bingo, as specified in the Schedule to the Order. Gaming fees are decreased by 26 per cent and 25 per cent respectively and gaming fees in relation to the renewal of licences where gaming is restricted to bingo are increased by 47 per cent. The fees in relation to the renewal of gaming licences and the grant and transfer of licences where gaming is restricted to bingo remain at the current level (article 2).

The Order makes consequential revocations of provisions of the Gaming Act (Variation of Fees) (Scotland) Order 2001 (article 3).
