President of ao «sәtti zhaldyz» alexander ten stated that the company’s plans – creating a unified lottery in the eurasian economic union countries (eaep). However, difficulties arise due to the introduction of vat, which are not subject to similar operations not only within the framework of the world. The representative of the industry notes that the introduction of an additional cost tax – illogical, because, in fact, there is no additional cost of these operations.
The above tax is charged on the sales of the operator and the prize fund (70% turn). Indition to the fiscal burden, the operator fulfills its obligations regarding sports in the country. So, during the work of the company for such needs, about 286 million tenge was listed.
