Online Gaming to be allowed in Netherlands
In Holland as of the 1st of January 2015, State Secretaries Teeven and Weekers want to make it possible that a online gaming licence can be obtained in the Netherlands.
The law that regulates this has been presented for consultation last month (May 2013). The online providers will have to pay 20% tax. So it seems that this is a significant step towards the modernization of the gaming policy in the Netherlands. The Netherlands will apply a rate that is near the high end as compared to the tax rate for online gaming in the neighbouring countries.
So before this becomes finial, the input will be processed and the proposal will be discussed by the Cabinet and submitted to the Council of State for advice.
