Dear Professional Colleagues,

Greetings of the Day !

The Central Goods and Services Tax (Amendment) Bill, 2023" and "The Integrated Goods and Services Tax (Amendment) Amendment Bill, 2023," was passed by  Lok Sabha and has will be brought into effect from 01.10.2023.


Proposed Amendments

  • The proposed amendments introduced through “The Central Goods and Services Tax (Amendment) Bill, 2023 make a clear distinction between online gaming and online money gaming specifying that online money gaming is online gaming in which the player pays or deposits an amount in the expectation of winning some amount in a game or event, etc.
  • The proposed amendments do not affect the tax on casual online gaming in which no real money or betting or wager is involved.
  • The proposed amendments make it clear that the activity of online money gaming will be taxed on the total amount paid or payable to or deposited with the supplier by or on behalf of the player, irrespective of whether the game is based on skill or chance or both.
  • Further, the amendment is being done in the Act to provide that actionable claims involved in or by way of casinos, horse racing and online gaming are covered under the ambit of GST.
  • Registration under GST is being made mandatory for a person supplying online money gaming from a place outside India to a person in India.
  • A special provision to provide for tax liability on overseas suppliers of online money gaming and also the provisions for simplified GST registration for such suppliers as well as powers for blocking websites/platforms of non-compliant suppliers.
  • In case of import of intangible goods such as actionable claims involved in or by way of online money gaming etc., which do not physically cross customs frontier, IGST cannot be collected through Customs. The amendments propose to give powers to the Government to notify such goods so that in case of import of such goods, IGST can be levied and collected as regular inter-State supply under provisions of IGST Act.
