Greek Goverment seeks to bring down gambling taxes

Published on October 13, 2017

According to the latest Greek reports, the Syriza Government is seeking to reform the Greek gambling industry by cutting down the taxes on casino gambling in order to attract international companies.

Last Monday, eKathimerini published a report stating that according to sources, “a bill will tabled in the next few weeks” and it will contain a “new tax status for gaming tables and slot machines”.

As per the report, “the government has received proposals from institutions that foresee a mixed system that would bring down the tax rate on gross turnover from 30-37 percent (depending on the case) to 25 percent or even lower.”

One of the goals of the reform is the bailout program aimed at licensing a casino at Elliniko and the relocation of the Regency Mont Parnes casino to a location near Athens.
