    Default Tax in EU

    Hi all,

    I read a message below about income tax in the US. How is it for EU affliates. I don't have a registered company but receives the revenue to my bank account.

    Would I need to tax for it and how?

    Sorry for a stupid question....

    short answer: yes you should pay tax on it when it is more than a certain minimum

    Of course you do not have to pay taxes on a crime. Gambling is illegal in Germania, remember? =)

    You don't have to pay on tax in Sweden either on European winnings, but that is not the same for affiliates, from an affiliate point of view you are not making your revenue from gambling/betting. Your revenue is based on a service that you provide, i.e. drive traffic to a site, market a brand etc.

    So I would think that the Swedish Tax Agency want to get hold of their share of affiliate revenue if they could prove that the money comes from that activity.

    Rev share deals can be discussed on what the actual profit comes from though but always a few grey areas within the industry sadly enough.

    In the UK you have to pay tax or all income. You can do this by filling out a yearly form and giving it to the Inland Revenue who will calculate how much you owe them.

    I think that in the other countries mentioned, you also have to pay taxes. Although there may be 0% tax on gambling, as in the UK, this applies to the placing of bets and return of winnings. You still have to pay tax on income earned from promoting any form of gambling.

    I guess the best bet is to ask your local friendly tax office!

    It really depends on what country within the EU you live in. With tax its always best to sit with an accountant and find out what tax laws apply to you.
