Dutch Gambling Operators Face Additional Tax

by Ulrika Lomas, Tax-News.com, Brussels

27 September 2017


The Dutch Government has proposed an additional temporary tax on gambling, to commence when new gambling market regulations are introduced next year.

Under the Remote Gambling Bill, which is intended to open up the Dutch gambling market to foreign remote gambling firms, a 29 percent tax would be imposed on gross gaming revenue, the same rate already imposed on land-based gambling operators.

However, the recently announced Government Budget for 2018 included an additional 1.1 percent tax, revenues from which are intended to help with the implementation costs of the new legislation.

Under the Government's plans, the additional tax would be introduced when the legislation becomes effective, which is due to take place on July 1, 2018. The tax would expire six months later, on January 1, 2019.

The Remote Gambling Bill was approved by the lower house of parliament in July 2016 after numerous delays. However, there remains some uncertainty over the implementation of the new laws, which have yet to be approved by the upper house.
