Point of Consumption Tax: fact sheet 217.79 KB

From 1 January 2019, the Victorian Government will replace the current wagering and betting tax structures with a point of consumption wagering and betting tax (POCT). The POCT will apply at a rate of 8 per cent of the net wagering revenue derived from all wagering and betting activity by customers located in Victoria.

The Victorian POCT will be payable by wagering and betting operators on the revenue derived from wagers and bets, or on facilitated wagering and betting activity, of customers in Victoria. This reform will better align Victoria’s wagering tax system with the increasingly digital betting environment.
