Belgian VAT taxation on betting

EPMA members draw the attention on the negative impact of the new Belgian VAT taxation on betting announced by the government beginning of April.

If implemented, it will cause a massive decrease of the volume of online bets, the closure of points of sale, the disappearance of sponsoring and the development of the illegal market which does not give economic return to the regional economy. Moreover, the Horse sector will suffer. Horse breeding and horse racing activities depends on the return from betting.
