In Ukraine, the draft law № 2285-d on the legalization of the gambling industry has been adopted. It is known that now the issue of taxation of the industry is on the agenda, which determines what burden will be put on operators and how much tax payments the state budget will receive. The expected panel discussion will reveal a number of issues and problems on this subject.
Topics of the panel discussion at the online webinar
In connection with the event that has recently occurred, the first specialized business magazine on gambling LoginCasino.com.ua invites everyone to participate in the webinar on “Law № 2285-d. Panel discussion. Roadmap for gambling business”. During the webinar, among other things, experts will consider cases on creating a gambling business in the territory of a newly opened jurisdiction. It is should be noted that experts will analyze the bill, which has led to the legalization of the gambling business in Ukraine, based on examples of business models. The panel discussion will also be attended by representatives of the Ukrainian gambling industry, lawyers specializing in legal support for gambling, as well as deputies who took part in preparing an alternative bill and amendments.

- Taras Tarasenko – a People's Deputy of Ukraine
and other experts, look forward to the updated list.
What has the legalization of the gambling business in Ukraine in 2020 brought?
To date, it is known that since July 14, both land-based and online gambling have been legalized. Sports poker, lotteries, pool, and bowling are not classified as gambling. According to representatives of the relevant committee, the state budget is expected to be replenished by up to UAH 4 billion.
More information on this subject is available at the news about gambling in Ukraine.
During the second reading, the majority of the deputies voted for the adoption of the law on the legalization of the gambling business in Ukraine. However, despite this, there are those who do not support the draft law. According to David Arakhamia, the head of the Servant of the People parliamentary faction, on behalf of Yulia Tymoshenko (“Batkivshchyna”) and Vadym Novinskyi (Opposition Bloc), bills aimed at the abolition of the passed law have already been registered. The expert himself is sure that these actions are not capable of influencing the decision already made by the deputies.
This and other issues will also be discussed live during the webinar. Don't miss the opportunity to participate for free.
Legalization of gambling business: relevant issues
Earlier, at a press conference held at the press center "Ukrainian News", a number of experts spoke about the shortcomings of the gambling business taxation system. According to Mykola Melnyk, director of the analytical group “Leviathan”, the legalization of the gambling business in Ukraine will reduce the volume of the shadow market, and the adoption of the bill No. 2713-d, in turn, will contribute to this.
Experts participating in the webinar will also talk about the shadow segment and the new tax legislation.
