|CJEU confirms Danish differentiated tax regime for online gambling The highest European Court confirmed that a tax scheme that imposes a higher tax rate on land-based casinos than on internet-based online casinos is not in violation of EU laws. In our view the exact terms are the following :
The General Court dismissed both appeals purely on points of procedure, since it found that the applicants were not individually , nor directly concerned by the measure, and could challenge the measure before national Courts. Therefore the applicants in both procedures had no interest in filing the annulment procedure. The cases were declared inadmissible, meaning that the General Court did not address the validity of the Danish tax measures.
