Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation — 14 Apr 2003 at 22:13

Question accordingly agreed to.

7. Liability to general betting duty of betting exchanges

Resolved,

That-
(1) Immediately before section 5B of the Betting and Gaming Duties Act 1981 there shall be inserted-
"5A Betting exchanges
(1) This section applies where-

(a) one person makes a bet with another person using facilities provided by a third person in the course of a business, and

(b) that business is one that does not involve the provision of premises for use by persons making or taking bets.

(2) General betting duty shall be charged on the amounts ("commission charges") that the parties to the bet are charged, whether by deduction from winnings or otherwise, for using those facilities.

(3) No deductions shall be allowed from commission charges.

(4) The amount of duty charged under this section in respect of bets determined in an accounting period shall be 15 per cent of the commission charges relating to those bets.

(5) For the purposes of this section, and section 5B(4) so far as relating to this section, a person who arranges for facilities relating to a bet to be provided by another person shall be treated as providing them himself (and the other person shall not).".

(2) In section 5B-

(a) for subsection (1) there shall be substituted-

"(1) All general betting duty chargeable in respect of-

(a) bets made in an accounting period, or

(b) in the case of duty chargeable under section 5AB, bets determined in an accounting period,

shall become due at the end of that period.";

(b) in subsection (4), after "section 4(1) to (3)" there shall be inserted "or 5AB".

(3) In section 5C-

(a) in subsection (1), after "in the course of a business" there shall be inserted ", other than a betting-exchange business,";

(b) at the end of that subsection there shall be inserted-

"In paragraph (a) "betting-exchange business" means a business such as is mentioned in section 5AB(1).";

(c) subsections (2) and (3) and, in subsection (4), the words "In the case of a bet which is excluded from subsection (2) by virtue of subsection (3)," shall be omitted.

(4) The amendments made by this Resolution apply in relation to any accounting period beginning on or after 1st June 2003.

(5) Those amendments shall not apply in relation to a bet (a "straddling bet") that is-

(a) made, using facilities provided by a person ("the broker"), in an accounting period of the broker beginning before 1st June 2003, but

(b) not determined until an accounting period of the broker beginning on or after that date.

(6) Any winnings paid in respect of a straddling bet to which section 5AB of the Betting and Gaming Duties Act 1981 would apply but for paragraph (5) above shall be treated for the purposes of that Act as paid in the broker's accounting period in which the bet was made ("the earlier accounting period").

(7) Paragraph (6) above shall not have effect to reduce the general betting duty payable by the broker for the earlier accounting period; but the amount of the reduction that would (but for this paragraph) have been made for that period shall be set against any liability of the broker to general betting duty for accounting periods in the following three years, taking earlier periods before later ones until the amount is exhausted.

And it is hereby declared that it is expedient in the public interest that this Resolution should have statutory effect under the provisions of the Provisional Collection of Taxes Act 1968.

Resolved,

That provision may be made restricting the definition of "on-course bet" in Part 1 of the Betting and Gaming Duties Act 1981.

11. Vehicle excise duty (rates)

Motion made, and Question put,

That-
(1) In paragraph 1 of Schedule 1 to the Vehicle Excise and Registration Act 1994-

(4) This Resolution shall apply to any licence taken out on or after 17th April 2003 for a period beginning on or after 1st May 2003.
And it is hereby declared that it is expedient in the public interest that this Resolution should have statutory effect under the provisions of the Provisional Collection of Taxes Act 1968.
