Tax rise for gambling operators in the Netherlands

On Tuesday, the Dutch government announced along with its 2018 budget plans that is going to temporarily raise gaming taxes from 29% to 30.1% from July 2018 to January 2019.

The tax rise will affect the revenue from slots, casino gambling and all forms of remote gambling.
