Belarus to formulate new rules for gamblingReading Time: 2 minutes

Belarus is all geared up to formulate a new legal framework for gambling and online casinos in the country. Belarusian Tax and Duties Ministry has already formulated a draft decree. It is awaiting the Parliament’s approval.

The head of the Ministry Sergey Nalivaiko said that the draft document would provide for an increase in the age limits for visiting gambling establishments from 18 to 21 years. Visitors of casinos, including online ones, will be prohibited from borrowing other visitors, as well as gamblers, money (including electronic) or their equivalent (chips, tokens, etc.) for gambling.

Also, the document provides for the legalisation of online gaming in the Republic of Belarus.

It creates the possibility of recognising on a contractual basis the results of tests and examinations of models of slot machines, as well as virtual gambling establishments conducted by foreign authorised bodies (organisations).

It is planned to take additional measures aimed at improving the conditions for gambling operators. In particular, administrative procedure for registering taxable items (like gambling machines, gaming tables, cash desks of bookmaker’s offices) is planned to be cancelled. Accounting of this equipment will be made through connections to a special computer cash system (CCS), allowing to pay tax on gambling in a fixed amount, based on the actual connection of gaming equipment to the CSK, which provides control over the turnover in the field of gambling.

For those operators who use the gaming equipment for less than 15 calendar days in the tax period, it is proposed to reduce the fixed rate of tax on gambling by 50 per cent. As a rule, these are new gambling operators, organisers of poker tournaments, or those who modernise the gaming equipment or repair it.

For totes and bookmakers, which operate online, there will be a transitional period – two years from the date of entry into force of the provisions of the draft decree. During this period they will be able to carry out activities on the basis of a special permit (license) issued prior to the entry into force of the decree and thereby adapt to the new requirements for online operators set by the decree. It is proposed to introduce obligatory expertise and certification of the information security of online gambling.

“At this stage, considering the planned legalisation of online gambling and additional investments needed to organise a new type of activity in the gambling business, the Ministry of Taxes and Duties does not plan any changes in the taxation policy of this activity,” – Sergey Nalyvayko specified.

Thus, fixed rates for gambling tax are planned to be maintained for the next three years without changes, at the level of tax rates established for 2018.

Leading online bookmaker becomes race day sponsor at top Scottish racecourse

 

Leading online bookmaker Betway has been announced as the sponsor of Musselburgh Racecourse’s prestigious New Year’s Day race day.

The key fixture in the East Lothian track’s jumps season attracts a crowd of 5,000 racegoers and two races, both to be sponsored by Betway, will be broadcast live as part of ITV’s festive racing package which is anchored from Cheltenham.

The bookmaker will sponsor the feature races on the day, each valued at £30,000, the Betway Auld Reekie Steeple Chase and Betway Hogmaneigh Hurdle, as well as the remainder of the card.

It will also have naming and branding rights to the January 1 meeting and branding opportunities at two other Musselburgh fixtures on January 7 and 18.

Betway’s Alan Alger said: “With racing sponsorships already in place across England and in Ireland, we’re delighted to now be expanding into Scotland.

“Musselburgh has a deep and rich history of racing and we’re very pleased to be a part of its future, starting with a cracking day’s racing on New Year’s Day. With £30,000 up for grabs in both the Betway Auld Reekie Chase and the Betway Hogmaneigh Hurdle, and the ITV Racing cameras in attendance, hopefully we’ll see some hotly-contested renewals.”

Musselburgh Racecourse’s senior operations and commercial manager, Sarah Montgomery, said: “Our New Year’s Day meeting grows year-on-year and is now established as an important fixture in the UK racing calendar. We are delighted to secure the support of leading industry brand Betway and look forward to establishing a long-term mutually beneficial relationship.

“We have made significant investment in recent years to improve the raceday experience by introducing luxury marquees, top class entertainment and high quality locally sourced food and drinks suppliers, which all contributes to making New Year at Musselburgh an unforgettable way to welcome in the year.

“This exciting new partnership with Betway means we can crack on with our plans to strengthen the New Year’s Day meeting by improving the quality of racing on the track and enhancing the quality of off-track facilities and entertainment.”
