IPL 2022: Current GST on the fantasy industry is 18%

Currently, the fantasy industry has an 18% levy, but that is soon to be changed as GoT will have it tweaked to 28%. “With the number of online gamers in India expected to grow to 650 million by 2025, the Indian online gaming industry is well on its way to revolutionizing the global gaming market, and favorable taxation is one of the biggest boosts to this growth. Our recommendation to the GoM is to levy GST on the GGR or platform fee earned by operators.

This is in the greater interests of the industry, and also in accordance with global practices. We hope the outcome will be reflective of the same,” lobby group the Federation of Indian Fantasy Sports said.

IPL 2022: Saurabh Agarwal tax partner at consulting firm EY India explains the increase in GST on the gaming industry

Saurabh Agarwal says the increase in some gaming sectors will be spiked from the original 18%. But he stated that an increase in all forms of gaming should not be considered for time being.

“The increase in the GST rate on casino, racecourse, and online gaming is likely to see a sharp increase in revenue for the government from these sectors. However, all forms of online gaming should not be considered for GST at 28% as many such games are merely meant for entertainment,” said Saurabh Agarwal, tax partner at consulting firm EY India.
