The Revenue Service of the Ministry of Finance of Georgia has published a document (tender) on its official website informing about the interest to acquire a project providing a mechanism for controlling gambling business in the country.
“To date, the Revenue Service has no mechanism to establish and carry out a full control over the payment of taxes and the fulfillment of the gambling license conditions, because it does not have the required information,” the document says.
In order to provide the control over gambling business, the Revenue Service needs information on revenues and deductions from each gaming device, the percentage of the winning, the history of transactions in case of electronic gambling operations, and history of filled in tickets in case of totes.
Thus, the Revenue Service has announced a tender procedure for the development of the relevant project.
The tender procedure will end on October 2. And the estimated start time for the winning project is December 1.
According to the latest data, there are about 6.4 thousand gambling devices in Georgia, seven online casino websites and 90 totalizators (betting houses).
