Last month, Gibraltar’s Betting and Gaming Association took the UK Gambling Commission to High Court over the plans to implement a new point of consumption online gambling and advertising law.
The court case led to the new law being suspended to the 1st of November and Gibraltar losing the court case. However, it seems like they won’t give up that easily as they have now asked for a judicial review of the Treasury’s Tax plans.
They may have found a loophole that shows the new gambling laws goes against the principles of EU Law. As companies that do not stick to the new tax regime will have their licenses revoked. They are arguing that this goes against EU law as it was be based purely on economic growth.
