Belarus does not cease to amaze: in recent years, the state has been developing rapidly, creating new business opportunities (for example, recently you can open a company to work with ICO in Belarus).
Literally in early August 2018, the head of the Republic of Belarus signed a decree “On improving the legal regulation of gambling”. Thus, the government decided to legalize the gambling business, which for a long time was “outlawed”.
- licensing of activities (in order to engage in online casinos you need to register a Belarusian company and to obtain a gambling license in Belarus);
- a taxation of online casinos in Belarus.
- a guarantee deposit on a special account (it will be used to pay out winnings and settle with the budget, in case there is no money from the business owner);
- remote access to online casino tax services (to monitor the turnover of the establishment and verify the identity of visitors);
- the age of visitors and participants of the casino must be 21 years old;
- the presence of a video surveillance, which will fix participants in gambling and payment of money to them.
Such innovations are primarily associated with intentions of state bodies to reduce the outflow of money abroad.
The decree, regulating the operation of the virtual casino, is a progress for conservative Belarus, but total control by the tax authorities is alarming for businessmen.
Therefore, at the moment, it is better and easier to obtain a gambling license in Curacao or obtain a gambling license in Malta, or other jurisdictions, that will best meet your needs and possibilities.
