Registering for betting tax

As a betting operator, you must register for betting tax with the Office of State Revenue at the end of the first month that your taxable wagering revenue (TWR) equals or exceeds the annual threshold amount.

For example, if your TWR equals or exceeds the annual threshold amount during March 2020, you must register for betting tax by 7 April 2020.

Annual threshold amount

The annual threshold amount is $300,000.

Tax rate

Betting tax is applied at the rate of 15% to a betting operator's TWR that exceeds the annual threshold amount.

What you need to do

Before you register for betting tax, you need to create an individual OSR Online account. (You cannot set up a generic account for a company.) Then link your individual account to the taxpayer.

See instructions on how to:

Once your account has been validated, select the Registration tile within OSR Online.
