ClubGRANTS gaming machine tax year 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 423.9 KB).

2019 key dates

  • Tax year end: the next gaming tax year for clubs ends on 31 August 2019
  • Lodgement date: submit your 2018-19 ClubGRANTS electronic return by 6 September 2019

The new way to lodge your return

A new portal is being developed for clubs to lodge their ClubGRANTS gaming machine tax return online. This is an exciting new feature of the Centralised Monitoring System which will replace the online spreadsheet method.

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.
