Denmark to increase iGaming tax

Denmark’s Social Democratic government recently approved the Finance Act for this year. The new budget in Denmark increases taxes for iGaming and sports betting providers by 8%, which brings the total to 28%.

The government believes that increasing the taxes to 38% will make them perceive an extra €20.1 million in profits into government coffers, Xinhua reported. The measure received support from Unity List, Radicals, SF and the Alternative Party.

The government decided to increase the taxes for iGaming and sports betting operators as it believed that it was significantly lower than the one land-based casinos pay. A 45% on gaming gross revenue (GGR) tax is paid by casinos and an extra 30% on revenue higher than €535k.
