Betting Tax Review Submissions

During the 2016 Finance Bill Committee Stage Debates in both the Dáil and the Seanad, a commitment was given that betting duty would be examined as part of the 2017 Tax Strategy Group process. 

As part of the Review the Department undertook a consultation process which sought the views of industry, stakeholders and the general public. The consultation process closed on 19 June 2017.

The TSG Papers are now complete and were presented to the TSG on 25/7/2017.  The Betting Review was included in the General Excise Paper TSG 17/07.

Interested parties were invited to make submissions in relation to the current rates and methods of taxation. 13 written submissions were received, with detailed suggestions.  All submissions have been considered.
