MELBOURNE, Vic., Australia (August 4, 2022) — Gaming taxes are changing in mid-August, in accordance with the Gambling Regulation Act 2003 (section 3.6.6C).

What is changing?

From 16 August 2022:

  • the tax rates will increase
  • there will be an additional tax bracket to apply to the calculation of the gaming tax
  • there will be separate calculations that apply to:
    • 1 to 15 August 2022
    • 16 to 31 August 2022
    • beyond 1 September 2022.

The calculation to work out taxable revenue will not change.

How will the August tax be calculated?

As the changes come into effect in the middle of the month, gaming taxes will be calculated in two accounting periods:

  1. 1 to 15 August
  2. 16 to 31 August.

Advice for gaming venue operators

As a result of the above changes, there will be two direct debits from your nominated bank account on 7 September.
