Philippines Approves New 5% Tax on Gaming Revenues of POGOs

The Philippines authorities have approved a new 5% tax on the gaming revenues of Philippine Offshore Gaming Operators (POGOs).

The House Committee on Ways and Means passed the measure which sees POGOs classified as resident corporations and therefore subject to an additional 5% franchise tax on top of current tax and fees.

PAGCOR currently collects a 2% franchise tax from licensed offshore operators, generating around Php8 billion in revenue each year, but the 5% tax is expected to push that figure to Php20 billion.

The new measure also allows for all foreign employees of POGOs earning Php600,000 (US$11,850) or more to be taxed 25% on their wages and other allowances, potentially pushing the government’s annual revenue from the POGO industry north of Php45 billion.

Macau Gaming Inspection and Coordination Bureau (DICJ) has conducted iGaming inspections during MGS Entertainment Show 2019, as part of an ongoing campaign to ensure exhibitors are not engaging in the display or promotion of consumer-facing iGaming products.

The operation, carried out alongside the Judicial Police and Macao Trade and Investment Promotion Institute (IPIM), involved “various surveillance actions” to check whether exhibitors were promoting illegal online games, the creation of gaming websites or other activities related to illicit gambling.

No such cases were detected, although unspecified irregularities individually committed by some exhibitors were corrected on the spot, the DICJ said. Information leaflets were also distributed to all exhibitors clarifying Macau’s legal provisions.
