ClubGRANTS Electronic Return

Registered clubs who earn $1million or more in gaming machine profit each year are taxed through the ClubGRANTS scheme. 

The scheme enables a club’s participation, support, and leadership within their local area by providing funding for projects, services, and programs that benefit their community.

  • All registered clubs have a mandatory tax of 0.4% as their contribution to the ClubGRANTS Fund. 

  • An additional 1.85% tax is applied to clubs who don’t meet the lodgement date or their ClubGRANTS obligations as outlined in the Guidelines.
