Thursday September 15,2011 : Pressure mounts for a realistic tax on online gambling
The momentum for a more reasonable tax regime in France continued to build this week with the Government-established advisory committee Comité Consultatif des Jeux (CCJ) adding its voice in favour of an online gambling tax based on gross gaming revenue as opposed to the current system.
Support from the committee follows closely on submissions to the French Government from France's national regulatory body (ARJEL) and French online gaming trade association l’Association Française du Jeu en Ligne (AFJEL) recommending changes to French online gaming law and a tax rate based on gross gaming revenue.
