ClubGRANTS electronic return

Information for clubs to lodge their gaming machine financial year returns online, under the ClubGRANTS scheme.

It is important that clubs lodge returns by the due date otherwise gaming machine profits exceeding $1 million may be taxed at an additional rate of 1.85%.

The overall effect of ClubGRANTS is that amounts equalling 2.25% of registered clubs' prescribed profits in every tax year are to be returned to the community from gaming machine tax receipts through ClubGRANTS (being 1.85% to clubs as ClubGRANTS tax rebates and 0.4% as payments to the ClubGRANTS Fund on behalf of clubs).

Current lodgement dates

Eligible clubs must submit their 2016-17 ClubGRANTS electronic return by 7 September 2017.

Failure to do so will result in gaming machine profit exceeding $1 million during the tax period being taxed at the additional rate of 1.85 percent.
