GST on online Gaming: GoM recommends 28% GST, Experts says disadvantage for game companies (19th May, 2022)

Ankur Gupta, Practice Leader ( Indirect Tax), SW India, commenting on the matter said “In most countries, the online gaming industry is taxable more or less at par with the current taxability of 18%, therefore, it’s a disadvantage for Indian game companies if the taxability moves to 28%.”

“Now what has to be seen is the valuation of these services. It should be applicable only on margin/platform fee because in case it is applicable on the entire pool value then it would adversely impact the customers, as well as they, would get less playable value,” he added.
