Mr Green to Appeal Austrian Tax Ruling

This story was published more than 9 years ago.

Online betting site Mr Green has announced that it intends to file an appeal with the administrative and constitutional courts in Austria regarding a tax dispute between itself and the country's tax collectors.

Mr Green has been in a long standing tax dispute with Austrian tax collectors, as the country requires companies to be taxed at a rate of 40% on Gross Game Win, whether or not they hold a license in Austria or another jurisdiction. Mr Green is licensed in Malta and claims that the law is not valid due to a conflict with European Union law. Nonetheless, the country claims that Mr Green owes SEK 108 million in taxes.

Mr Green CEO Mikael Pawlo addressed the issue, noting: We contest the tax liability and are hopeful that our objections will be given due consideration."

If the appeal is not overturned, Mr Green intends to file with the European Court of Justice to review the case.
