New Gaming Licensing




As a new venue licence holder you will be responsible for the payment of licence fees, tax and a community support levy.

Make sure you understand your new financial obligations and how to meet them.

One-off application fee

Everyone who applies for a venue licence will pay an application fee. This fee covers the costs associated with assessing your application. The amount you pay will depend on:​

  • when your LPG licence is due to expire (to find this information, see your licence); and
  • whether you intend to operate EGMs and keno, or keno only.

Quarterly licence fee

Venue operators will pay an annual licence fee in advance through quarterly instalments. The amount you pay will depend on:

  • whether you operate EGMs and keno, or keno only; and
  • how many gaming authorities are endorsed on your licence.

Monthly tax and levy on EGM gross profits

Venue operators will pay a tax and a community support levy on their monthly EGM gross profits.

At the end of each month, the monitoring operator will advise each venue operator and the State of gross profit data. The State Revenue office will then advise each venue operator how much they need to pay in tax and for the levy, for that period. Venue operators must then pay this amount to the Commissioner of State Revenue by the 14th day of the month.​

Further information

Further information will be provided once the fees have been set.​
