CLUB FRUIT MACHINE HIRE
Club fruit machines are typically located in clubs such as social clubs and private members clubs, however they can be installed into any bona fide club to bring in a new customer and entertain your current ones. When choosing a fruit machine, we will advise you on the best type for your customers and of any new products, so that you can rent the best fruit machine for your venue and budget. All of your gaming machines hired from us are fully maintained at no extra cost.
The rules that apply to club fruit machines are a little different than those for pub fruit machines in light of your private membership and tighter control over who has access to your premises and to your gaming machines.
As such you have flexibility over what fruit machines you hire – including the stakes and the prizes available as well as the branding and general design of the unit and these factors can all combine to affect the amount you earn from your gaming machines.
There are two main types of club fruit machines:
Category B4 – Cash prizes up to £400.
Category B3a – Cash prizes up to £500.
Category B4 machines are the most common in clubs and if your club falls below the de minimis limit for VAT which it almost certainly does you will be able to reclaim any tax paid to the fruit machine hire provider.
You can have up to three Category B4 machines installed on your premises and to boost takings we would recommend opting for machines with a note recycler fitted allowing them not only to take payment using notes but to pay out prizes in paper money too.
Category B3a machines do not incur Amusement Machine Licence Duty and no VAT is paid on takings but you can only have one and it must be in place of one Category B4 gaming machine.
Again if you are below the de minimis limit any tax paid to the fruit machine hire provider should be able to be claimed back and machines hired on a profit-share agreement are usually entirely cost-free upfront as a result.
