Italian nightmare continues as MPs approve new turnover tax

first_img Share Related Articles Submit New ADM chief: Italy to keep strictest monitoring on gambling incumbents July 6, 2020 Italian bookmakers face cruel summer as ADM sanctions shop closures July 27, 2020 StumbleUpon To the dismay of licensed incumbents, Italy’s parliament has approved the introduction of an emergency ‘turnover tax’ on betting and virtual sports wagers.The publishing of last week’s state gazette confirmed that MPs had backed amendments introducing a new ‘temporary’ 0.5% turnover tax across all betting-related verticals – online, retail and virtual sports content.The turnover tax is introduced as a series of first measures forming the government’s ‘Revival Decree’, a mandate which seeks to raise funds supporting the post-coronavirus recovery of Italian business and society.First drafts saw Italian MPs call for a 0.75% betting turnover tax to be sanctioned securing funds for Italian sports and its associated development programmes.Settling on final amendments, the Italian government will establish a new 0.50% betting turnover tax, which will be ‘temporarily applied’ until 31 December 2021.The temporary tax charge will allow PM Giuseppe Conte to establish a new ‘sports relief fund’ which aims to raise €90m by 2021, directly financed by Italy’s licensed betting incumbents.Reacting to further tax burdens, betting leadership has questioned the logic of the Conte government’s action plan in taxing an industry that has been in full complete lockdown since March and faces a tough reopening of retail venues from 14 June.The dire consequences of lockdown saw Italian sports betting (retail and online) record a 72% revenue decrease during March and April, with new ADM Director-General Marcello Minenna emphasising that it would take ‘at least a year’ for the sector to recover.Applying its new temporary charge, Italy becomes one of  Europe’s highest-taxed regulated sports betting markets, in which incumbents already pay GGR betting duties of 20% for retail, 22% for virtual games and 24% for online betting.Retail betting trade body’s Acadi and Sistema Gioco warned the government against enforcing an unworkable tax framework which would impose a likely +30% GGR tax burden across its licensed verticals.Meanwhile, Moreno Marasco – Director of Italian online gambling trade association LOGiCO – stated that the government had ‘gifted the underworld’ with its new tax plan.Marasco underlined Italian betting’s disbelief that a turnover tax had been sanctioned to save Italian sports. As governing bodies had urged the government to follow European counterparts in establishing a ‘guaranteed loan framework’ to safeguard funding for Italian sports clubs.Revival Decree measures face their final readings by the Senate before being federally ratified. Betting leadership hangs on the hopes that the Senate will review amendments to enforce the turnover tax as a further GGR charge… slim pickings for an exhausted industry.

Black Stars players will never respect any local coach: Langabel

first_imgLong time entertainer of the national football team Black Stars,Joseph Langabel says the players of the team have no respect for local coaches who have coached the team and believes the trend will continue if a local coach is given the job.Kwesi Appiah recently parted ways with the team after an unsuccessful World Cup campaign littered with bickering. The former coach also revealed at the hearing of the Dzamefe Commission that he had run ins with German born midfielder Kevin Prince Boateng.According to Langabel who has been with the national team since the late 1980’s local coaches will continue to struggle at the helm of the national team.”The blacks stars players don’t respect the black .Our black coaches have a fair attitude towards the players and that relationship has led to the players taking them for granted.A white coach will deal with them if they misbehave” he told Hello FM in Kumasi”Kwesi appiah is a gentleman but the players do not like that just like Ghanaians do not like easy things. When Ghana was ran by military men look at how we behaved,everybody was at their most respectful,it is the same with the white coaches”.Langabel,who is also an ardent fan of Accra Great Olympics recalled the situation that led to Sulley Muntari almost getting kicked out of the World Cup in 2010. “In 2010 an incident happened between Sulley and Milo.As soon as that happened Milo drove him out with no hesitation .I went to tell Randy Abbey,Fred Pappoe and the rest of the management team. They were helpless and they came together as a team including Inkoom and some players  to kneel and beg for mercy before Muntari was restored to the team.Our local coaches have too much sympathy for our players because in Ghana everybody knows everybody.”last_img read more

Deep pockets eye Valley for loans, advice to business

first_img brent.hopkins@dailynews.com 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! A deep-pocketed backer has its eyes on the San Fernando Valley, aiming to bring money and jobs along with its interest. Genesis LA Economic Growth Corp., a private, nonprofit group based downtown, announced Thursday that it will partner with the Economic Alliance of the San Fernando Valley and the Valley Economic Development Corp. Genesis brings with it access to tens of millions of dollars in funds, with an aim to distribute at least $5 million within the next two years. Targeting developers planning difficult-to-finance projects, the partnership will look to provide loans, offer business counseling and connect interested parties. “It’s harder in the Valley,” said Brad Rosenberg, president and chief executive officer of Genesis. “The infrastructure hasn’t been set up here, because people have always focused on the denser areas of poverty like South L.A. But there’s a lot of businesses that need help here, lots of businesses moving out. We hope we can change that.” AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORECasino Insider: Here’s a look at San Manuel’s new high limit rooms, Asian restaurant With job cuts or relocations announced at Washington Mutual, Ronco Corp. and Superior Industries International Inc. in the Valley just in recent weeks, the groups will have plenty of issues to deal with. Genesis already has some experience in the area, providing loans for an industrial park in Van Nuys and the SunQuest Business Park in Arleta. Though Rosenberg said the group does not keep figures on the percentage of loan requests that it ultimately approves, he said he aspires to offer some service to each business that approaches Genesis, whether it’s in the form of money, advice or referrals. Bruce Ackerman, president and CEO of the Economic Alliance, welcomed the partnership, saying it would help bring employment to under-represented areas. “Our focus is jobs, jobs, jobs,” he said. “Whatever it takes to keep businesses here, we want to do it.” Brent Hopkins, (818) 713-3738 last_img read more
