UK Online Market Tops £1.71bn - £242m in taxes, Scott Longley, GamblingCompliance | Poker & eGaming News | Scoop.it

The UK government can expect to generate up to £242m in revenues from the introduction of its planned point of consumption (POC) tax, according to the results of a new report from GamblingData.


In detailing the UK online gambling market to be worth £1.71bn in net gaming revenue (NGR), GamblingData suggests that between 5.25-7.25 percent of the market would end up avoiding the tax at the proposed 15 percent rate.
