Sri Lanka to set up gambling regulator

The Cabinet of Ministers of Sri Lanka has authorised the setting up of a new body. The commission will be responsible for the field of gambling, revenue collection, and the general course that gambling will take in the state.

The heads of ministries have cast their votes in favour of the law, which was prepared by the president.  The bill spells out which body is to be established. In addition, the law defines the norms for the gambling sector.

According to the bill, an elaborate structure should be formed around gambling. This will ensure taxation, reduce harm and limit illegal work. However, not all norms of the bill have been defined yet. For example, the validity period of the licensing document which is needed to operate in Sri Lanka is not yet known. It is possible that the period could be as long as two decades.

As far as taxes are concerned, gambling clubs will have to pay 40% of their own income. The licence fee is equal to USD 1300000. Discussions about forming a regulator started back in 2022. At that time it was decided to give licensing documents to 4 gambling clubs to improve tax efficiency.
