The Government has announced plans to introduce an amendment to the Gambling (Licensing and Advertising) Bill which would see the obligation to pay the horserace betting levy extended to overseas bookmakers, alongside the requirement in the Bill which will require overseas bookmakers to obtain a licence in order to provide facilities for gambling to consumers in Great Britain.

The Government has also confirmed its plans to look at the long term options for the levy, with a consultation to be conducted “in due course”.
