I would ask the question, 'How does Cambodia benefit from allowing online gambling?'gavinmac wrote: ↑Sat Feb 22, 2020 11:31 amThen why not just go to the casino companies and say "give us a few more bucks"? Or let them keep doing it because some tax revenue is better than none?

theres only so many gamblers the built casinos could reach but the online casinos were able to reach everyone everywhere and the poor authorities were only able to tax the built casinos & whatever the online gambling license holders declared which of course would be a miniscule fraction of their actual turnover.
I hardly believe that money gambled from China, to some corporate offshore account is going to be paying all, or any, of its Cambodian tax requirements.
The Cambodian tax department is currently incapable of collecting actual cash payments in Cambodia from Cambodians to Cambodian companies.
