Astra response to Budget
Zane Mersich, CEO, Astra Gaming Group
“The Astra Gaming Group welcomes the Chancellor’s decision made in last week’s Budget to halve the rate of Bingo Duty to 10 per cent. It goes much further than the five per cent reduction sought by the bingo sector and will hopefully deliver a much needed shot in the arm for our customers.
“The cut in duty represents a levelling of the playing field for stakeholders who, for too long, have endured an inequitable tax regime. As a result, they can now look forward with more confidence, reshape their investment strategy and effect positive changes that will help secure a brighter future for the bingo business.”
