On January 30, 2015, the Michigan Gaming Control Board (“MGCB”) issued a revised set of supplier license exemption forms to coincide with MGCB Resolution 2015-01, which became effective February 1, 2015. The new forms are now available on the MGCB’s website at: http://www.michigan.gov/mgcb/.

Resolution 2015-01 provides guidance on the MGCB’s supplier licensing exemption processes and policies. Under the new requirements, suppliers of non-gaming goods or services to a Detroit casino may apply for a licensing exemption if the supplier provides less than $400,000 in a 12-month period to a single casino licensee. In addition, those companies providing up to $50,000 per 12-month period in non-gaming goods or services are automatically exempt. These business volume thresholds have been increased from $300,000 (single casino)/$600,000 (two or more casinos) and $5,000 per 12-month period, for discretionary and automatic exemptions, respectively.

The forms contain a number of changes to remove redundancies and make the process more simple for applicants. These changes include combining the initial and renewal supplier exemption forms into one new document. In addition, the ownership disclosure thresholds have been increased from fifteen percent to twenty five percent. The new forms also remove certain questions related to past business addresses, contractors for the vendor, and certain additional questions related to ownership.
