The Dutch government announced changes in the online gambling tax and licensing fees that gambling operators must pay.
In particular, from October 1, operators who are engaged in online gambling will have to pay tax in the amount of 1.95% of gross income (now they pay 1.75%). The new rate will be valid for 10 years, and its introduction is necessary to cover the costs of the Dutch state regulator of gambling, the country’s authorities explained.
At the same time, the amount of fees that must be paid by lottery and casino operators to obtain a license has been reduced – from 48 thousand euros to 28 thousand. Operators of online gambling, officials said, will continue to pay 48 thousand euros.

Earlier it became known about the increase in licensing fees from gambling operators in the UK.
