Alderney, one of the Channel Islands in the English Channel, has gained immense popularity among many gambling operators. If you are interested in a gambling business license, experts at SBSB Fintech Lawyers advise considering an Alderney Betting License. This reliable jurisdiction offers favorable conditions for registering iGaming businesses.

Alderney Gambling Regulations

Although the island is under British protectorate, its regulatory framework does not fall under the jurisdiction of the UK Gambling Commission. Additionally, Alderney has its own taxation system. The Alderney Gambling Control Commission (AGCC) is responsible for regulating the industry and creating a favorable environment for investors in the iGaming business. Established in 2000, this independent body has created favorable conditions for licensing and operating gambling operators.

The Commission’s operation, rules for gambling operators, licensing stages, certificate issuance, and several types of licenses are governed by the Alderney Gambling Laws. The organization licenses companies planning to provide “remote gambling” services from servers.

Advantages of Alderney Gambling Permit

This jurisdiction has established itself well in the international gambling market. Transparent legislation, favorable conditions for the Alderney gambling industry, and opportunities for business growth have attracted operators from around the world. Over 90 gaming companies and game suppliers, as well as over 100 websites with foreign investments, are registered here.

There are several reasons for the popularity of a License for Betting Activities in Alderney:

  • low tax rates;
  • international authority of the jurisdiction;
  • simple and fast licensing process;
  • modern infrastructure and access to high-speed internet. 

The latter point is important for operators because online platform servers must be hosted in an AGCC-approved hosting center (on the islands of Alderney or Guernsey).

How to Obtain Alderney Gaming License

In Alderney, you can obtain several types of permits:

  • Category 1 License. This permit allows operators to offer a wide range of B2C services, covering all types of gambling activities, allowing user verification procedures and management of their funds.
  • Category 2 License. This B2B permit is suitable for software providers offering gaming platforms. The document allows gaming and betting operations.
  • Temporary eGambling License. Operators who already have a license from another jurisdiction can choose this type of permit. It includes the same operations as a full license. However, according to regulator requirements, it can be used continuously for 29 days or for 59 days within six months.

SBSB experts note that only companies registered in Alderney can submit documents and applications for licenses.

Besides licenses, companies can obtain compliance certificates. Their functionality mirrors licenses, but unlike licenses, certificates can be obtained by foreign companies without registration on the island.

Regulator Requirements for Regulatory Approval for Gambling in Alderney and License Acquisition

To open a gaming business in Alderney, the applicant must go through several stages:

  1. Register the company in Alderney.
  2. Submit an application to the AGCC and pay a deposit for a special investigation into the potential licensee’s compliance with regulator requirements.
  3. The applicant must meet with the regulator and provide a prepared business plan, data on software providers, and other corporate information.
  4. Pay the license fee.

After testing and approving gaming equipment and internal control systems (ICS), the regulator decides on issuing the license.
