Online gambling - jurisdiction - Antigua and Barbuda

Antigua and Barbuda gambling licenses

Antigua and Barbuda was the first online gambling jurisdictions and regulators way back in 1994 before the online gambling craze hit the world. They are known to have fair rules and regulations and are a well respected jurisdiction.




The Antiguan government set out to diversify and increase economic development in the 90s. This was the framework for what would become the island's remote gaming industry. Antigua enacted a very inclusive regulatory scheme for various companies providing remote gambling services by the late 1990s. Due to a solid reputation, the island experienced dramatic growth in its own gaming industry.

Under Antiguan regulation, two types of gambling and betting licenses are provided: The first is an interactive gaming license, for casino gambling and wagering, and the second is interactive wagering, used for sports betting.

Antigua's remote gambling operators offer account betting, meaning a player must fund his or her account before wagers can be made. No wager can exceed the amount funded, and wins or losses are credited to a player's account.

Antigua and Barbuda have strict license requirements. All licensed operators need to meet a number of requirements before even being considered for approval, and they will be subjected to a thorough vetting process to ensure reputability.

Some of the lesser requirements state that operators strictly enforce age limitations, barring anyone under the age of 18 to participate in the gaming operations or as players. All operators are also required to display a warning on their web site, citing the various addiction possibilities of gambling and subsequent information on sites assisting with compulsive gambling.

Antigua and Barbuda have a web site that offers a way to connect for those seeking a license. They present detailed information about their screening process. In order to secure a license, an up-front, non-refundable fee of $15,000 USD is required for due diligence.

This screening process is very thorough, and if passed, an interactive gaming license costs $100,000 USD. For an interactive wagering license, applicants must pay $75,000, with an additional $5,000 annually for renewal. If you'd wish to have a monitoring system, the fee is $25,000 for one license, $45,000 for two.

All operators must meet Antigua's high standards of excellence. Anti-fraud and money laundering regulations must be adhered to, as well as a slue of other regulations regarding finance. Antigua is not responsible for changing laws or regulations in any particular area.

Any customer complaints can be filed with the Antiguan Directorate of Offshore Gaming if a remote gaming operator isn't able to handle the issue. The Directorate will review and investigate the problem if necessary.

Licence Fee
$15,000 non-refundable application fee.
Interactive gaming license: £100,000.

Where can I host my gambling website?

This is a common recurring theme for new gambling operators who wish to get their toes wet in the gambling industry.

When we launched our first gambling website way back when, we took a $12 per month shared hosting account with a local webhosting company in Florida. Boy have times changed! In this day and age I would not be caught dead with my gambling servers in the USA, Canada, the United Kingdom etc.

When I realised that a very real problem existed in these jurisdictions in terms of having sites switched off, servers confiscated, I started to look for a more favourable jurisdiction and discovered the Isle of Man, Jersey, Malta, Costa Rica etc.

For reasons I will not go into, I picked Curacao and this I have made my home and I am very happy with the service delivery and ethics of the local companies very pleased with the level of expertise at my fingertips and happy with the overall infrastructure that is in place.

For the smaller operator, we offer $29 per month starter packs. This is a shared hosting account, similar to the one that we started on. It can be upgraded to a Cloud server once your business grows out of the shared environment.

Servers are costed out and built according to your needs and when you get in touch with us, we will discuss what we can do for you.

Until then, Curacao is the destination for gambling hosting and we are a slick cloud hosting company that can get you online and operational very quickly.

Curacao Legal Structures - The Curacao Trust

Introduction:
The Curaçao Trust was introduced in January 2012 as an alternative to the Private Foundation. Unlike the Private Foundation the Curaçao Trust is based on the Anglo-Saxon Trust.

Formation and Obligation:
A Curaçao Trust is established by a Trust Deed that has to be executed before a Civil Law Notary practicing in Curaçao. This condition also applies if the Trust Deed has to be amended or revoked later. Furthermore, the Curaçao Trust must be registered with the Curaçao Chamber of Commerce & Industry.

The Trust may be created during the Settlors’ life or in a will drawn up by a Civil Law Notary. The Trust is governed by the terms under which it was created as laid down in the Trust Deed.

Settlor:
The settlor settles assets to a Trustee (legal entity or individual) who holds and manages these Trust’s assets for the Beneficiaries or for a specific purpose.

Trustee:
The Trustee carries the fiduciary responsibility and liability to manage the Trust’s assets in accordance with both the terms of the Trust Deed and the governing law. Furthermore, the Trustee is obliged to administer the Trust’s assets separately from other funds.

The assets held in trusteeship are removed from the Settlor’s equity and will only become part of the Beneficiaries’ equity when the Trust issues a distribution to such.

At all times there must be one local Trustee. The Trust Deed must include a provision to prevent a situation where there is none.

Beneficiaries:
The Beneficiaries must be clearly identified in the Trust Deed. The Settlor can appoint himself as Beneficiary. Individuals not yet born or legal entities not yet established at the time of creation of the Trust, may be appointed provided they are sufficiently ascertainable.

Protector:
The Trust Deed may include a provision for the appointment of a Protector of the Trust’s assets. The Protector can be compared to the Supervisory Board Member of a Foundation or a Limited Liability Company. The Trust Deed must specify who can appoint a Protector as well as his duties if there is a provision for such.

Uses:
  1. Estate planning and inheritance – the establishment of a Curaçao Trust can be attractive both from a fiscal as well as a controlling point of view.
  2. Passive finance activities – the Curaçao Trust can provide loans to related or unrelated parties.
  3.  Structuring private pension - as to achieve tax advantages.
  4.  Protection of assets – by placing assets in Trust the assets can be protected against political or economic instability.
  5.  Investments – as the trust is not limited to certain activities, it can be attractive for investment purposes.
  6. Business Trust – as an alternative to depository receipts for the separation of economic and voting rights.
Taxation:
The Curaçao Trust is exempt from Corporate Income Tax if the Curaçao Trust does not operate an enterprise. Investment activities together with passively holding shares in subsidiaries do in principle not qualify as operating an enterprise.

To avoid any doubts whether the Curaçao Trust operates an enterprise or not, a tax ruling may be obtained with the Tax Inspectorate in Curaçao.

However, the Curaçao Trust that does not operate an enterprise may request that it is regarded as a taxable entity, a so-called funding capital. The Corporate Income Tax rate is in that case 10% on regular income as well as capital gains.

If opted for the status of funding capital, this will apply for a minimum period of three years. After that period the Curaçao Trust may, upon request, return to the exempt status.

Turnover Tax :
If the Curaçao Trust delivers goods and provides services as an entrepreneur or imports goods, it will in principle be subject to Turnover Tax.

If the Curaçao Trust has been granted a foreign exchange license by the Central Bank of Curaçao and St. Maarten it is not considered an entrepreneur for Turnover Tax purposes to the extent it performs foreign –oriented activities.

Withholding Tax:
There is no withholding tax on dividend, royalty or interest payments.

Gift Tax:
Contributions of assets to the Curaçao Trust by non- Curaçao residents are exempt from Curaçao gift tax. Every distribution from a Curaçao Trust is exempt from gift tax.

Personal income tax:
Distributions by the Curaçao Trust to non-Curaçao residents are exempt from Curaçao Personal Income Tax.

We work with a number of Trust Companies in Curacao to ensure that our clients receive the best possible corporate service alongside our gambling hosting service and this article was put together with Pearl Trust, a Trust company from Curacao.
