Hotel tax rates

All hotels that operate gaming machines are required to pay gaming machine tax.

Gaming machine tax is calculated on metered profit, using the data collected on the Centralised Monitoring System (CMS) from each gaming machine in NSW.

Revenue NSW collects tax quarterly via direct debit, on day 21 after the end of each tax quarter.
