Govt moves to enforce taxation on gaming industry
Hundreds of private members clubs
and bar owners who operate gambling
machines have been thrown into a state
of panic after Finance Minister Colm
Imbert's announcement of a rigorous
enforcement of licensing of these es-
tablishments and an efficient taxation
They say contrary to popular belief, they
are already licensed under the Liquor Licence
Act and listed under the Financial Intelli-
gence Unit and pay substantial sums in taxes
to the Government yearly.
They are fearing any increased taxation
can shut down the industry and put 8,000
employees on the breadline.
The T&T Guardian spoke to the presi-
dent of the Amusement Gaming Association
of T&T, Russell Bahadursingh and Sherry
Persad, president of the T&T Private Mem-
bers Club Association, after Imbert's an-
nouncement in his mid-year budget review
Imbert indicated this was part of the
Government's plan to earn revenue for the
The Gambling (Gaming and Betting) Con-
trol Bill is, at present, before a Joint Select
Committee of Parliament and is expected
to be passed in the House soon.
The bill was introduced by the former
People's Partnership government but sent

ciation, are totally against the Gambling Bill.
Operators import, assemble and distribute

bling machines that have mushroomed all over the
country, particularly in rural areas, who choose not
to be members of his association, operate under the
Liquor License Act.
Bahadursingh said no bar owner or machine opera-
tor will be able to survive under the new regulations.
He said bars and pubs are already taxed $3,000 per
machine per year. A bar might have about five ma-
chines at most. Bahadursingh said the T&T Amuse-
ment Gaming Association and Private Members Club
Association have sent numerous letters to Imbert but
never got a response and made recommendations to
Sherry Persad, of the Private Members Club As-
sociation, is welcoming the new legislation saying
they have been lobbying for it for years.
"We have always been deemed illegal but we have
always been paying taxes. The perception is that we
don't. "We pay taxes for every piece of equipment
in our clubs, National Insurance, health surcharge,
a lot of customs duties for importing our equipment.
A substantial amount of money is paid from this in-
