Monthly returns for betting tax

As a registered betting operator, you will lodge monthly returns within 21 days of the end of the relevant month. The betting tax monthly return accounts for your taxable wagering revenue (TWR) for that month.

For example, if you exceed the annual threshold amount during January 2019, you must lodge your January 2019 return by 21 February 2019.

But you won’t need to lodge a monthly return for June - your June TWR will be included in your annual return instead.

Exemption from monthly returns for on-course bookmaking

If you are a registered betting operator whose primary betting operations are on-course bookmaking, you will be exempt from the requirement of lodging monthly returns.

You must still lodge an annual return.

A betting operator who is exempted from monthly returns may give up this exemption and lodge monthly.
