Lottery Machine AMLD Case Heard in Court

20/04/2011

The industry finally saw its case against the HMRC’s imposition of AMLD on lottery machines in clubs go to tribunal last week.

It has taken four years for the case to reach the court, after the HMRC imposed back dated and punitive AMLD and VAT on lottery style machines that had been manufactured by companies such as Oasis Technologies and Reflex Gaming and which had -  at the time  – received Gaming Board approval. The machines were operated in good faith by many single site operators, some for around ten years, before HMRC decided that they should be subject to back-dated taxation.

The VAT part of the argument has now been dropped by the HMRC following the Oasis tribunal hearing last year.. It will be at least a further 10 weeks before a decision is released and Coin-op Community will report on the findings in due course.
