The Czech Republic’s Ministry of Finance has announced plans to increase gambling taxes in the country, with bingo, live games and lotteries set to be the hardest hit.Aside from gaming machines, which are taxed at 35% of gross gaming revenue (GGR), all gambling taxes in the country are currently at 23% of GGR.However, such rates would jump to 30% of GGR for lotteries, live games and bingo operators, if the Ministry’s plans are approved. Other forms of gambling, such as fixed-odds betting, face a more modest increase from 23% to 25% of GGR, while the 35% rate for gaming machines would remain unchanged.The proposals, which would come into force in January 2020 if rubber-stamped later this year, also include tax hikes for the tobacco and alcohol sectors, with the Ministry insisting that the sole aim is to “increase the public budget”.The Ministry’s submission for the tax changes stated: “The proposed amendment to the gambling tax law divides the rate of gambling tax into three levels, according to the harmfulness of individual gambling in the same way as the government’s draft Gambling Tax Act of 2015.”However, the plans have drawn criticism from a number of politicians in the country’s Chamber of Deputies lower house, including Miroslav Kalousek, the former leader of the KDU-CSL and TOP 09 parties who has twice served as the government’s Finance Minister.“We can divide the word ‘gambling’ into socially acceptable activities and addiction,” he told the Pravo news website. “There is a big difference between slot machines and a bunch of employees in a workplace contributing towards a ticket.“For lotteries, I would leave the rate of taxation at the current level. I consider the increase to 30% to be absolutely disproportionate and unnecessary.”Jan Volny, the vice-chairman of the ANO 2011 political party, which has 78 seats in the house, said that he would “agree with a slight adjustment, but 30% is a lot and could be counter-productive in collecting taxes”.He added: “Personally, I am a little worried not to overdo it and avoid gambling in the grey market. Current tax rates on live games and lotteries is sufficient.”Jan Bartošek, a prominent member of the Chamber of Deputies for the Christian and Democratic Union party, echoed fears that an increase in tax rates could “lead to an increase in illegal gambling”.The country opened up its regulated iGaming market at the start of 2017.

Topics: Finance Marketing & affiliates 19th February 2020 | By contenteditor Tags: Online Gambling Profit up at Raketech despite revenue decline in 2019 AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Online affiliate and content marketing provider Raketech has reported a year-on-year increase in profit for 2019, despite new regulations in the Swedish market pushing revenue down.Total revenue at Raketech for the 12 months to 31 December 2019 amounted to €23.9m (£19.9m/$25.8m), down 6.5% from €25.6m in the previous year.Raketech said despite an 8.8% increase in new depositing customers for the year – climbing to 108,365 – revenue was negatively impacted by a decline in player value in Sweden during the year.Total operating expenses in 2019 jumped 23.6% year-on-year to €17.8m, with Raketech seeing costs climb across several areas of the business. Staff costs were the main outgoing, with employee benefit expenses up 7.4% to €5.2m, due in part to a €400,000 severance payment to former chief executive Michael Holmberg.Direct costs related to fixed fees and commission revenue were up by 71.4% to €3.6m, which Raketech said was a result of increased investment on its product portfolio, as well as higher marketing spend.Other expenses were up from €4.2m to €4.6m, while Raketech said depreciation and amortisation costs rocketed by 170.6% to €4.6m mainly due to its purchase of Casumba Media and costs related to the acquisition of CasinoFebe. However, Raketech was slightly helped by not having any expenses for its IPO, which last year set it back €1.5m.Lower revenue and higher costs pushed operating profit down 45.5% to €6.1m. However, when taking into account $2.3m in other non-operating income, which related to party liability that was waived in Q1 of 2019, profit before tax was up 54.2% to €7.4m.After paying €256,000 in tax during the year, profit after tax amounted to €7.2m, representing a year-on-year increase of 56.5%. However, Raketech did report a decline in adjusted earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortisation (EBITDA), which fell 23.6% to €11.0m.“Looking back at 2019 it can easily be described as an eventful and challenging time, not only for Raketech but also for the affiliation industry and the igaming sector as a whole,” Raketech chief executive Oskar Muhlbach said.“The Swedish gaming market has been particularly tough which with Raketech’s heavy Swedish presence added to our challenge. On a positive note, 2019 was also a year where we made good progress in strengthening our product mix, expanding our geographical footprint as well as our operational capacity.“This was achieved through strategic acquisitions, a series of key recruitments and relentless efforts within process improvements to ensure we are ready to grow and scale efficiently.”In terms of Raketech’s performance in the fourth quarter, revenue was down by 23.3% to €5.8m, partially due to a 22.1% drop in new depositing customers for the period. Raketech last month had warned investors about its financial performance in Q4.Operating expenses in the three months to 31 December 2019 climbed 57.9% to €6.0m, which, combined with lower revenue, pushed Raketech to an operating loss of €134,000, compared to a profit of €3.8m in the previous year.Loss before tax in Q4 amounted to €360,000, down from a profit of €1.8m in the same quarter in 2018, while loss after tax stood at €342,000, in contrast to a profit of €1.7m in 2018.“We experienced a slow start of the fourth quarter, which was both disappointing and somewhat surprising as it is normally seasonally strong,” Muhlbach said. “Especially since our product portfolio showed stable operational performance with increased new depositing customer intake of 5% compared to the previous quarter.“Our response to the slow start was to launch a series of targeted paid media efforts, granular site audits, individually tailored operator campaigns, improvements to our top list algorithms and more. This, in combination with a slight general market upswing resulted in a confident finish landing the quarter as a whole just slightly lower than the previous quarter.” Finance Email Address Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Online affiliate and content marketing provider Raketech has reported a year-on-year increase in profit for 2019, despite new regulations in the Swedish market pushing revenue down.

Views expressed on the companies mentioned in this article are those of the writer and therefore may differ from the official recommendations we make in our subscription services such as Share Advisor, Hidden Winners and Pro. Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. I’m sure you’ll agree that’s quite the statement from Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner.But since our US analyst team first recommended shares in this unique tech stock back in 2016, the value has soared.What’s more, we firmly believe there’s still plenty of upside in its future. In fact, even throughout the current coronavirus crisis, its performance has been beating Wall St expectations.And right now, we’re giving you a chance to discover exactly what has got our analysts all fired up about this niche industry phenomenon, in our FREE special report, A Top US Share From The Motley Fool. Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares On Saturday, I discussed how shares in asset manager M&G (LSE: MNG) were incredibly cheap by FTSE 100 standards. Indeed, M&G shares are such a bargain that they have an earnings yield of 24% and pay a yearly cash dividend of 7%.Pru is M&G’s big brother in the FTSE 100M&G was spun off from its parent Prudential (LSE: PRU) last October. Hence, now feels like a good time to analyse the shares of its big brother in the FTSE 100.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…The first thing to note is that Pru is Goliath to M&G’s David. Currently, Pru is valued at £31.7bn, making it seven times the size of its £4.4bn little brother. Furthermore, Pru is bigger on an international scale. It offers financial products and asset management services throughout the UK, US and notably in fast-growing Asia.Pru is a FTSE 100 heavyweightAs I write, Pru shares hover around 1,236p, up 31.5p (2.6%) in Monday’s trading. For Pru shareholders, it’s like the Covid-19 crash never happened, as they have dipped just 3.1% over the past 12 months.Then again, Prudential has been around for a very long time. It was founded in Hatton Garden, London, in 1848 and, within 50 years, had grown to be the UK’s biggest life insurer. By World War I, a third of British adults were covered by Pru policies. Hence, it’s been a household name here for more than a century and a long-standing member of the FTSE 100.Pru was a leading pioneer in ‘penny policies’: insurance policies with small premiums collected in cash, usually weekly, by insurance agents. These gentlemen (and, later, ladies) were known as the ‘Man from the Pru’, helping Pru to become the #1 brand in UK protection and savings.Pru shares crashed with the marketOver the past 12 months, Pru shares peaked at 1,509p on 20 February – just before the coronavirus crisis crashed the market. Today, they remain 18.1% below this 52-week high.What was crazy was that, on 19 March, you could have become part-owner of Pru by buying a share at the bargain-basement price of 682.8p. I suspect I’ll never see this FTSE 100 share so low again in my lifetime (and I’m only 52).Pru shares combine value with growthRight now, Pru shares trade on a price-to-earnings ratio (PER) of 21, for an earnings yield of 4.8%. They pay a dividend of 3% a year, covered 1.54 times by earnings.Normally, these ratios would not make Pru attractive to me as a value share. Usually, I prefer lower PERs and higher dividend yields. But Pru has strong exposure to two very attractive regions: the huge US market and the fast-growing Far East (notably Hong Kong and China).Hence, I’d buy and hold this FTSE 100 share today, for Pru’s stability and size, for future earnings and dividend growth – and for exposure to the go-go economies of the future!

News News Receive email alerts October 11, 2019 Find out more RSF_en Reporters Without Borders calls for a thorough investigation into the allegations of repeated harassment that two women journalists and five other female employees at Haiti’s state-owned radio and TV broadcaster RTNH have made against its director-general.In an open letter to the ministers of culture and women’s affairs on 28 November, journalists Deborah Jean and Stéphane Eveillard and the five other employees accused the director-general of repeats acts of sexual and psychological harassment, abuse of authority and arbitrary dismissal.The letter said he “uses his position as director-general to persecute, humiliate and try to objectify almost all the women working at RTNH who refuse to have intimate relations with him.”After the letter’s release, Jean and three of her colleagues were fired on the grounds of defamation, insubordination and seriously damaging the reputation of RTNH and its director-general.“We are concerned about the grave allegations made by these RTNH employees and we urge the authorities to conduct an independent, impartial and thorough investigation”, said Claire San Filippo, the head of the Reporters Without Borders Americas desk. “Haiti’s women journalists must be able to work in an environment that is safe and free of any discrimination and violence.”Journalist Liliane Pierre-Paul, the president of the National Association of Haitian Media, told Reporters Without Borders that the number of women working for Haitian media has increased in recent years but they still face many challenges.“The road is very long for women who want to become professional journalists in Haiti, she said. “They have to face a lot of reticence on the part of their families and significant smear campaigns due to discrimination against women. All these factors prevent women from advancing in the media where they work.”There are still many more men than women working in the media, especially at the higher levels, she saidHailing the courage of the RTNH employees, Pierre-Paul added: “There are probably many more cases of psychological and sexual harassment, but most do not come to light and are suffered in silence. Publicly denouncing this problem is very brave and may encourage other women to do the same, so that it does not recur.”More than half of the 977 women journalists polled worldwide by the International Women’s Media Foundation for a 2014 report said they had been the victims of sexual harassment. Of these acts of harassment, 42 percent took place in the office where they worked and were by colleagues or superiors.The UN Plan of Action on the Safety of Journalists and the Issue of Impunity stresses the importance of taking a gender-sensitive approach when considering measures to address the safety of journalists.Haiti is ranked 47th out of 180 countries in the 2014 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index.

Pinterest Local News Heather Massey is the Regional Director of the Better Business Bureau in the Permian Basin. Check out www.bbb.org or call 563-1880. Severe thunderstorms have passed through multiple parts of Texas this past week, and more could be on the way this month. With the amount of rainfall already saturating the ground, some creeks and rivers in Texas are already past flood stage, causing some homes and businesses to be affected by water damage.Flooding can cause all kinds of damage, particularly mold, which can be a serious health risk. It is important that mold can hide in places you don’t see, such as under carpet and flooring, as well as behind wallpaper and drywall. Mold can also form inside walls around pipes, and in roofing materials, so you may need a professional to tell you if you have mold.Better Business Bureau serving the Heart of Texas has the following tips for those cleaning up or preparing for flood damage:>> Research with BBB. Before working with a water damage restoration company or mold remediation business, check their reviews and complaint history on bbb.org. You can also prepare now by searching mold remediation and water restoration businesses that are accredited with BBB at bbb.org. BBB Accredited Businesses must abide by BBB’s 8 Standards for Trust, which including tell the truth, advertise honestly and honor promises.>> Work with your insurance company. If your home, business or vehicle was damaged by flooding, contact your insurance company and ask about policy coverage and how to initiate the claim process. Document the damage by taking as many photographs as possible. Your insurance company can also recommend reliable water damage restoration businesses.>> Try to prevent further damage. Dry out and disinfect impacted areas to help prevent mold and run fans and dehumidifiers. Consult an expert to see if rugs and carpets can be salvaged.>> Be wary of door-to-door solicitors. Obtain a contract that specifies the work to be done, the price breakdown for labor and materials and an agreed upon timeline. Never feel pressured into signing on the spot. Avoid paying with cash for the entire job up front.>> Get at least three bids. Get at least three estimates for the services you need from different companies so you can compare prices and get the best deal.>> Ask for references. Make sure the business has extensive experience by asking for a list of references. It’s also a good idea to ask friends and family if they have recommendations.>> Verify licenses. Confirm that the company you hire is licensed for the type of work they’ll be doing in your home. For example, if they’ll be doing contractor work like tearing out cabinets or mold assessment and remediation, you can go to tdlr.texas.gov to verify their license.
