Racing Bets Levy

On 7 July 2018, changes to the Racing Bets Levy Regulations came into effect. The changes apply to all race meetings conducted on or after 1 August 2018. The new rates are as follows:

Pari-mutuel

  • Below $3million: 1% of turnover
  • Above $3million (standard race meeting): 2% of turnover
  • Above $3million (premium meeting): 2.5% of turnover

Betting Exchange

  • Below $3million: 1% of turnover
  • Above $3million (standard race meeting): 1.5% of turnover
  • Above $3million (premium meeting): 2.5% of turnover

Fixed Odds

  • Below $3million: 1% of turnover
  • Above $3million (standard race meeting): the greater of 1.5% of turnover or 13.6% of gross revenue
  • Above $3million (premium meeting): the greater of 2.5% of turnover or 22.7% of gross revenue

No levy is payable in any month where an operator generates less than $1000 in turnover (although a return is required).

The racing bets levy is payable monthly although levy calculations will be conducted on each race meeting and added together to arrive at the monthly total. The levy will be calculated in date order and in the following code order – Thoroughbreds (T), Harness (H) and Greyhounds (G)

Premium race meetings have been re-defined in the regulations as follows:

  • Thoroughbred racing – any meeting that contains at least one race with stake money of $100,000
  • Harness racing – any meeting that contains at least one race with stake money of $30,000
  • Greyhound racing – any meeting that contains at least one race with stake money of $30,000

The department’s online racing bets levy system captures the new levy rates, the new premium racing criteria and the new method for calculating levies after each race meeting.
