Practical instructions for the compiler of the account
These instructions apply to the non-money lottery permit accounts, issued by the Police Board.
The execution of the non-money lottery permit must be made an account within five months of the end of the execution period.
The non-money lottery account must show the following:
- License number
- Number of lotteries sold
- Total income from sold values. This means the gross return on lottery sales, ie the return before deducting the cost of running the lottery.
- Execution costs for the non-money lottery specified. Only the costs incurred in carrying out the lottery are reported.
- The costs incurred for the use of the practical executor shall include the costs incurred for the use of the body designated as the practical executor in the permit. If no practical executor is specified in the permit, this section is left blank.
- Expenses incurred for the use of another service provider are recorded under the expenses incurred for the use of service providers other than the practical executor. All sales commissions and expenses arising from the sale of lotteries must be recorded in sales expenses. If sales commissions are paid to several different parties, the licensee may, if he or she so wishes, provide a separate report on the distribution of sales commissions to different parties. The National Police Board may request a separate statement of selling expenses.
- Proceeds from the non-money lottery: to whom and when the proceeds have been transferred. This records how the funds are actually used. There is not a sufficient entry in the licensee's account, nor is there a sufficient record that the lottery proceeds will be used in accordance with the permit decision or rules. Alternatively, a statement of the use of the proceeds may be given in a separate annex. If the intended use is to use the funds for animal welfare costs, the accounts must state the costs that have been covered by the funds, such as the costs of veterinary medicines for animals, veterinarians' fees, fees for medical staff, etc.
The non-money lottery permit account must be accompanied by:
- An explanation of how the proceeds will be used for the purpose specified in the non-money lottery permit, unless the explanation has been provided on an account form.
