Healys to Host Free Seminar on UK Draft iGaming Legislation

TAGs: healys, igaming legislation, United Kingdom

uk flag6 December 2012 (London, UK)- Healys LLP, the London Law Practise, is to host a free breakfast seminar to discuss the future for UK facing online gaming and betting businesses licensed offshore. On Thursday December 13th, industry experts will gather for the briefing at Healys LLP, 15 Jockeys Fields, London.

On December 3, 2012 the UK Government released draft legislation requiring all UK-facing offshore businesses to be licensed in the UK. The Government previously indicated its intention to tax online gaming and betting at the point of consumption in 2014.  The combined changes in licensing and taxation will have a dramatic effect on the business models for companies currently licensed and operating or contemplating setting up in Alderney, Isle of Man, Gibraltar and Malta.

“It was a pleasure to be asked by Healys to moderate this seminar” said iGaming Business Editor in Chief and moderator Michael Caselli. “Since the recent legislation, insight is needed on the future for UK-facing online gaming companies. The seminar will allow delegates to hear from key industry figures on the implications for their business.”

Industry expert panellists:

David Schollenberger, Head of Gaming Team, Healys LLP solicitors

Bill Robinson, KPMG Head of Economics

Clive Hawkswood, Executive Director, Remote Gambling Association

Jeremy White, Barrister, Pump Court Tax Chambers

Steve Donoughue, Gambling Consultant
