Internet betting firm Mr Green has revealed that they are in the process of appealing a ruling against them by the Austrian government, wherein they face a 40% tax rate for any operations that targeted the country's citizens.
The appeal was announced by Mr Green's CEO Per Norman, who revealed that the betting firm is pressing its case in both Austrian courts and the European Commission. At heart of the dispute is the fact that Mr Green operates from Malta and is subject to licensing laws put out through the Malta Gaming Authority. The company has tax experts who say that they have several objections to Austrian tax laws and the company is hoping they can get the decision reversed.
Commenting on the company's appeal Norman said, "We contest the tax liability in its entirety and are hopeful that our objections will be given due consideration. We are now seeking recourse through the Austrian courts and the European Commission."
