TABCORP URGES BAN OF OPERATORS IN TAX HAVENS
2015-02-16

Australian operator Tabcorp has urged a ban on wagering operators utilising tax havens such as Vanuatu in a submission made to an Australian corporate tax enquiry.

The submission follows a 90-page report titled Who Pays For Our Common Wealth? released in September 2014 that detailed many top ASX200 companies with subsidiaries in tax havens paying well below the corporate tax rate of 30 percent.

In other submissions to the inquiry, other ASX 200 companies openly detailed their use of overseas hubs where they claim interest payments to lower their tax bills, SMH reported this morning (Monday).

Tabcorp proposes amendments to the Interactive Gambling Act requiring operators obtain an Australian licence before being able to accept bets from Australian citizens ensuring they operate under pre-determined conditions that would cover contributions to horse racing, tax and responsible gambling initiatives.

Kerry Willcock, executive general manager of legal and regulatory for Tabcorp said in the submission: A number of offshore jurisdictions, such as Vanuatu, offer licences to wagering operators under no or low-tax regimes.

"There are few barriers to wagering operators, such as corporate bookmakers licensed in the Northern Territory, re-establishing their Australian operations in these low or no-tax international jurisdictions.

POKERSTARS ANNOUNCE EPT SEASON 10 SCHEDULE
2013-05-06

With the end of the European Poker Tour Season 9 finale in Monaco still around the corner, PokerStars has already released its EPT Season 10 schedule.

The key change in Season 10's schedule is a shift for EPT San Remo, dropping the Italian stop back in just before Monaco. But other changes made to the Season 9 schedule have proved successful enough to continue such as an increase in high roller events at each stop and regional tour partnerships such as the Estrellas Poker Tour and the UK & Ireland Poker Tour.

"During a successful Season 9 where we decided to host fewer and bigger events incorporating the national tours, we listened to an enormous amount of player feedback who valued less time spent travelling, and more time spent playing. Since the San Remo tournament will be held immediately before the EPT Grand Final in April, it will mean players can spend the whole month of April on the beautiful Riviera," said EPT President Edgar Stuchly.

Alex Noren leads by 1 stroke
2013-04-27

After two days of delays, the event got back on track despite the cold and windy conditions at the Blackstone Course.

Noren is seeking his fourth European Tour victory and first since winning twice in 2011.

"The tough thing here is to judge the wind on the second shots, so it's been tricky for the mind and I'm exhausted right now," Noren said.

Pablo Larrazabal of Spain (68) and Peter Whiteford of Scotland (68) share second place at 8 under.

Former British Open winner Louis Oosthuizen shot a 71 to be tied in eighth at 5 under.
