Tax and Duties
Gaming machines are subject to VAT or machine gaming duty (MGD) but not both. Any product that pays out a cash prize greater than the cost to play the game is subject to duty at a percentage rate determined by the stake on the takings of the machine. All other machines pay VAT on their takings. This is a highly complex area. Detailed guidance can be found on MGD here and on VAT here.
