The side effects of gambling legalization in Belarus
"Here I eat." It is this phrase that can characterize the position of the Belarusian authorities immediately after announcing the full legalization of gambling on the territory of the republic.
The Ministry of Taxes and Duties, the mouth of the head of the administration, Maria Nevinskaya, announced the planned date after which all gambling operators not secured by the state license will be declared "outlawed".
In order to avoid controversial situations, those wishing to work in the field of excitement before April 1, 2019 must acquire an appropriate permit package of documents that will be valid for exactly 2 years. This will be a kind of transition period from "shadow" to legal activity.
Those who received such a package, before August 1, 2019 will have to synchronize with the computer cash system. This step will help the state to get full control over all financial operations in the sphere of gambling.
"Red day of the calendar" will come April 1, 2021. From this moment all illegal resources will be blocked, and for illegal organization of gambling criminal responsibility will come. On the day of laughter, many will not be up to him.
