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.




SWEDISH PRO LEADS DAY 1A OF W.S.O.P. MAIN EVENT
2014-07-07

771 players - a lower March Madness Contest turnout than last year - turned out for the Day 1a, the first of three entry flights for the $10,000 buy-in 2014 World Series of Poker main event, which concluded over the weekend with retired chef and Swedish pro Martin Jacobson in the lead on 200,100 chips, more than 40,000 ahead of nearest rival Aaron Wilt.
Although smaller than last year, the field contained a host of major names in the game, including five former WSOP champions in Ryan Riess, Greg Merson, Chris Moneymaker, Tom McEvoy and Johnny Chan, all of whom survived and are among the 505 who move on to Day 2a.
Other notable names to advance included Mukul Pahuja, Layne Flack, Antonio Esfandiari and Annette Obrestad..
The day proved disappointing for professional players who were eliminated early, such as Phil Laak, Mustapha Kanit, Bruno Fitoussi, Eric Froelich, Jeff Gross, Jason Mercier, David Chiu and Jean-Robert Bellande.
When InfoPowa went to press the Day 1b flight was in full swing after television star and World Series of Poker regular, Ray Romano gave the 'shuffle up and deal" call.
Unofficial figures put the entry field for Day 1b at 2,144 players, and reports from WSOP indicate that entries for Day 1c - the last of the entry flights - have already soared past 3,000.
Seen taking their seats were former WSOP champs like Huck Seed and Dan Harrington, along with a strong female contingent of respected players like Lauren Kling, Sofia Lovgren, Liv Boeree, Vanessa Selbst, Erika Sands, Melissa Burr, Allyn Shulman, Amanda Baker and Ana Marquez.
Brian Hastings, Chris Moorman, Bertrand Grospellier, Philippe Gruissem, Max Silver, Erik Seidel, Brandon Shack-Harris and Sorel Mizzi were also spotted by big-name fans.

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.
