Antigua Eliminates One of the Taxes on Internet Gaming Operators

7 March 2000

Antigua's Director of Offshore Gaming, Gyneth McAllister, announced Tuesday that her government has abolished the 10 percent import duty on goods "required in the operation of Internet Gaming entities licensed in the jurisdiction.''

Last year, McAllister said in a statement, the government eliminated the 20 percent tax on international calls for Internet gaming companies. These reductions in taxes, she said, are part of an "industry enhancement plan'' for the offshore gaming industry in Antigua and Barbuda.

Other changes in the works, she said, include facilities for processing credit cards on the island. In addition, Cable and Wireless has announced rate reductions for bulk users of telephone service, effective the middle of this month.
