The document proposes to set the tax rate on income (gross gaming income) received from the organization and realisation of online casinos and online poker games at 10%, for the organization and realisation of gambling in casinos and slot machines at 12.5%, for bookmaking at 5%, for issuing lotteries at 10%.

In addition, gambling organizers pay the basic income tax.

Along with this, winnings in gambling and lotteries will be exempt from personal income tax and military tax.

As it was reported earlier, on July 14, 2020 the Verkhovna Rada legalized gambling business in Ukraine. The law authors stated that they would collect from 150 to 200 million dollars annually from market participants by license fee and tax.
