ClubGRANTS annual returns

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 PDF, 305.12 KB.

The new way to lodge your ClubGRANTS annual return

The portal is being designed to guide you through the drafting and lodgement process, but there are some important tips to be aware of:

  • The portal has a login and save function so you can start drafting your return before you’re ready to lodge.
  • A signed Secretary declaration needs to be included with your lodged return.
  • The gaming tax year for clubs ends on 31 August. You can lodge your return from 1 September to 9 September 2019.
