May's issue of the World Online Gambling Law Report

Highlights of May's issue of the World Online Gambling Law Report, include an indepth article by Dougie Todd and Martin Hynes of BDO LLP on the European Commission VAT Committee's recently issued working paper in which the application of VAT to online gambling is explored, which aims to bring clarity following the recent changes introduced by the new European rules on the VAT treatment of 'electronically supplied services' to private customers. 

Lindsay Slader, Operations Manager of GeoComply provides a personal account of April's committee hearing on internet and mobile gaming held in Pennslyvania by the House Gaming Oversight Committee, which saw Lindsay provide testimony on geolocation technology and how such technologies can ensure that the necessary safeguards concerning online gambling are in place. Lindsay provides a detailed account of the momentum within the state towards legalising i-gaming and the progressive and yet realistic attitude being adopted by the Committee. 

Other featured articles include analysis of Romania's online gambling transitory period following the likely approval of the primary legislation, which includes a detailed look at the requirements that apply to operators that have been or still are operating on the Romania market without a licence, and an overview of the new licensing requirements regulated by the draft secondary legislation that has been recently notified to the European Commission. 

Tony Rein and Melissa Baxter of Thomson Geer assess the point of consumption tax ('PoC') that has been proposed in South Australia, what this could mean for online gambling operators, and whether such a proposal that is likely based on the UK's new PoC regime is suited to the Australian market.
