11VAC20-20-100. Financial reporting, penalties, inspections, and audits.

A. Each holder of a charitable gaming permit or an authorization to operate and conduct electronic gaming shall file an annual report of receipts and disbursements by March 15 of each year on a form prescribed by the department. The annual report shall cover the activity for the fiscal year.

B. For all charitable gaming except electronic gaming, the annual report shall be accompanied by the audit and administration fee of 0.5% of the gross receipts and an additional fee of 0.25% for the fiscal year unless the fee has been remitted with quarterly reports, or the organization is exempt from payment of the fee pursuant to § 18.2-340.23 of the Code of Virginia.

C. For electronic gaming, the annual report shall be accompanied by the audit and administration fee of 0.5% of the adjusted gross receipts and an additional fee of 0.25% for the fiscal year unless the fee has been remitted with quarterly reports, remitted by the manufacturer pursuant to § 18.2-340.31 of the Code of Virginia. While the manufacturer may pay the audit and administration fee for the organization, it is the sole responsibility of the organization to ensure the fee is paid in full.

D. An organization desiring an extension to file its annual report for good cause shall, prior to the due date established in subsection A of this section, request the extension in writing on a form prescribed by the department and shall pay the projected audit and administration fee, unless remitted by the manufacturer pursuant to § 18.2-340.31 of the Code of Virginia or exempt from payment of the fee pursuant to § 18.2-340.23 of the Code of Virginia. The extension request and payment of projected fees shall be made in accordance with the provisions of § 18.2-340.30 of the Code of Virginia.

Qualified organizations shall submit quarterly reports with the appropriate audit and administration fee, as established in subsections B and C of this section, for the quarter unless remitted by the manufacturer pursuant to § 18.2-340.31 of the Code of Virginia, or the organization is exempt from payment of the fee pursuant to § 18.2-340.23 of the Code of Virginia. An annual financial report may substitute for a quarterly report if the organization has no further charitable gaming income during the remainder of the reporting period and the annual report is filed by the due date for the applicable calendar quarter.

F. An organization desiring an extension to file its quarterly report for good cause shall, prior to the due date as specified pursuant to subsection D of this section, request the extension in writing on a form prescribed by the department and shall pay the projected audit and administration fee, unless remitted by the manufacturer pursuant to § 18.2-340.31 of the Code of Virginia or exempt from payment of the fee pursuant to § 18.2-340.23 of the Code of Virginia. The extension request and payment of projected fees shall be made in accordance with the provisions of § 18.2-340.30 of the Code of Virginia.

H. Any qualified organization in possession of funds derived from charitable gaming or electronic gaming, including those who have ceased operations, regardless of when such funds may have been received or whether it has a valid permit or authorization to operate and conduct electronic gaming from the department, shall file an annual financial report on a form prescribed by the department on or before March 15 of each year until such funds are depleted. If an organization ceases the operation and conduct of charitable gaming or electronic gaming, it shall provide the department with the name of an individual who shall be responsible for filing financial reports. If no such information is provided, the president of an organization shall be responsible for filing reports until all charitable gaming or electronic gaming proceeds are depleted.

I. If an organization has been identified through inspection, audit, or other means as having deficiencies in complying with the Charitable Gaming Law and regulations adopted pursuant thereto or having ineffective internal controls, the department may impose restrictions or additional recordkeeping and financial reporting requirements.

J. Any records deemed necessary to complete an inspection, audit, or investigation may be collected by the department, its employees, or its agents from the premises of an organization or any location where charitable gaming is conducted. The department shall provide a written receipt of such records at the time of collection.

K. An organization that meets the requirements of 11VAC20-20-20 D 2 may use electronic gaming revenue for salaries and wages of employees whose primary responsibility is to provide services for the principal benefit of an organization's members.
