The Ukrainian Parliament adopted at its first reading the draft law №2713-d “On Amendments to the Tax Code of Ukraine and Other Laws of Ukraine on Taxation of Income for Gambling Operators”.
The bill is aimed at balancing royalties and the tax burden for the gambling market, which will help attract investment to Ukraine and fight the illegal market.
It is proposed to set the GGR tax in Ukraine for online casinos and Internet poker at 10% (now it is 30%), for land-based casinos and slot machines – 12.5%, for bookmaking – 5%, lotteries – 10%. In addition, operators will pay also income tax at a general rate of 18%.
The second reading of the draft law is planned for this autumn. The amendments will also provide for tax-free winnings up to 48 thousand UAH (about 1500EUR).
