Club Commercial Compliance

Over the term of a club licence, clubs must provide a range of compliance documentation to remain eligible for a licence.

There are three rounds of commercial compliance due each financial year:

  • Round 1: 15th July;
  • Round 2: 30th September; and
  • Round 3: 31st January.

Compliance requirements are influenced by the licensed club tier.

Effective from 1 July 2020, below sets out the club tier structure which has regard for the quantity of race meetings held by a licensed club.

Criteria Tier
18 & More Meets  1
9-17 Meets 2
4-8 Meets 3
1-3 Meets  4

Depending on the tier of a club, there are a number of compulsory and non-compulsory (optional) Commercial Compliance requirements. Requirements are outlined in the Club Commercial Compliance Checklist.
