Poland: Accepted Changes In Taxes, Including Gambling
Reading Time: 1 minute

Poland’s lower house (Sejm) has voted down five Senate amendments to a comprehensive amendment to several tax bills, including gambling.

The adopted amendments may be applied retroactively, which is to the income earned from January 1 2018.
Gamblers will be treated in a uniform manner after the changes.

Adopted by the Sejm on May 10th of this year extensive amendment to the Personal Income Tax Act (PIT), the Corporate Income Tax Act (CIT) and the Act on flat-rate income tax on certain revenues earned by natural persons; that all winnings on machines will be exempt from PIT, the tax relief for creators will be extended to the next creative professions, the real estate income tax will be larger. This applies to provisions adopted last autumn and effective from January 1st 2018.

Unlike the regulations adopted in autumn, the amendment assumes for example, that participants of legal gambling will be treated in a uniform manner. Regardless of whether the games are organized by casino operators or a company performing a state monopoly in this area, which would be Totalizator Sportowy. In line with the provisions changed by the Sejm and approved by the Senate on Thursday, winnings in slot machine games, card games, dice games and cylindrical games – regardless of which legally operating entities organize them – will be exempt from personal income tax.

In the remaining scope, the rules of taxing winnings (in numerical games, cash lotteries, mutual bets, etc.) are to remain unchanged in relation to the provisions currently in force. Pursuant to the amendment of October 27th 2017, winnings in gambling are subject to a l0% PIT tax on winning if their one-time value of winning exceeds PLN 2,280 (528 Euro).

Ukraine-based betting company “Favorit Sport” claims that the total number of bets on virtual sports rose by 230 per cent in 2018 compared to 2017. The number of individual customers betting on eSports too has increased 2.5 times.

Counter-Strike and Dota 2 still remain the most popular games among Ukrainians. Dota 2 attracts 50 per cent of the total volume of bets on virtual sports. An individual generally place a bet of about 100 hryvnias (4 USD).

However, Counter-Strike’s popularity has actually declined, with a decrease in the number of bets. It still accounts for 30 per cent of bets on eSports Overwatch, Rainbow Six, StarCraft, Rocket League and others make up the remaining 20 per cent.
