60(1)If a licence granted or to be granted under section 21 of BGDA 1981 would expire within the period of 30 days ending with the go-live date, a person may apply—

(a)for the licence to be treated as extended for the necessary period, or

(b)for a new amusement machine licence to be treated as granted in its place under Schedule 4 to that Act for the necessary period.

(2)The necessary period is the period from expiry of the licence until immediately before the go-live date.

(3)An application under this paragraph may be made before or after the licence is granted but, if made after the licence is granted, it must be made before the day on which the licence is to expire.

(4)The application must be made to HMRC in such form and manner as HMRC may require.

(5)HMRC must grant the application once it has received payment of an amount of duty payable on the licence (or new licence) in respect of the necessary period.

(6)The amount of duty payable in respect of the necessary period is to be the sum of the amounts payable for each day in that period, each such amount being 1/365th of the duty payable for a licence of 12 months for a machine of the relevant category.

(7)Schedule 4 to BGDA 1981 and any regulations made under that Schedule apply (subject to any modifications specified by the Commissioners in a notice published for the purposes of this paragraph) to an amount of duty payable in accordance with this paragraph as to an amount of duty payable in accordance with section 23 of that Act.

(8)Nothing in this paragraph affects the operation of that Act with respect to the provision of amusement machines in the necessary period in a case where no application is made under this paragraph or an application is not granted.

(9)But if a default licence is granted under Schedule 4A to BGDA 1981 for the necessary period, the amount of duty that may be assessed under paragraph 4 of that Schedule is limited to the amount that would have been payable if an application had been made for a licence under this paragraph.
