Italy aims to raise €90m through new betting turnover tax

first_img Regions: Europe Southern Europe Italy The Italian government is to introduce an 0.5% tax on licensees’ sports betting turnover, which it expects to raise €90m (£80.1m/$98.8m) by the end of 2021, to fund the recovery of the country’s sports following the novel coronavirus (Covid-19) enforced shut-down.Decree Law no. 34, also known as the Decreto Rilancio, sets out a series of urgent measures covering Italy’s healthcare system, as well as providing support for employers and to help the economy recover from the pandemic. It passed into law last week, after the law was published in the country’s Official Gazette.This sees the Fund for the Revitalisation of the National Sports System established under the Ministry of Economy and Finance. It will distribute money to the Ministry of Youth and Sports to support the recovery of professional and amateur sports throughout the country.Money will be generated for this fund through an 0.5% tax on sports betting stakes, covering online and retail wagers. This must be paid on a quarterly basis, until 31 December, 2021.Through this new fund, the Ministry of Economy and Finance aims to raise up to €40m in 2020, then a further €50m in 2021. Should the full-year target be surpassed before the date from which the tax is due to expire, it could be withdrawn at an earlier date, the decree noted.The imposition of the tax comes with Italy’s online and land-based sports betting sectors suffering badly from the suspension of all major sporting competitions. This resulted in betting revenue dropping 59.3% to €75.3m in March, before plummeting 72.7% to just €20.6m in April.Italian operator association Lega Operatori di Gioco su canale Online (LOGiCO) described the new tax as “inappropriate and unsustainable” from economic and legal points of view, contravened the principle of tax equity and threatened to benefit offshore operators.LOGiCO president Moreno Marasco pointed out that a 1% levy on turnover was equivalent to a 20% gross revenue tax, which coupled with an existing GGR tax of 24%, meant that taxes paid by the industry would almost double.Marasco said the betting sector had always supported sport, and argued that the most logical way for the industry to provide funding would be through sponsorship agreements. This, however, had been made impossible by the blanket ban on advertising introduced from 1 January 2019, he noted.

The last time I covered Premier Oil (LSE: PMO) shares, I concluded that while it looks as if the company will be able to survive in the near term, its long-term outlook is more uncertain.Since then, it’s become clear the company is facing a vastly different operating environment. As a result, the group’s outlook seems to have deteriorated significantly. And so have the prospects for PMO shares.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…PMO shares slideAt the beginning of the year, the price of oil was trading at around $60 per barrel. But since then, the oil market has been thrown into turmoil by the coronavirus crisis. At one point at the end of May, the price of oil had dropped below $20 a barrel.The price of the black gold has since recovered above $40. However, at this stage, it’s difficult to tell if it will ever return to previous highs.Oil demand is expected to fall around the world this year. Big oil and gas companies have already started writing down the value of their assets. Billions of pounds of assets have been written off to reflect this new normal. This could be a big problem for PMO shares. The company entered the crisis with one of the weakest balance sheets in the sector.Weak balance sheetAt the last trading update, Premier reported a net debt position of $1.99bn and a half-year cash position of $254m. It’s also in the process of spending around £475m buying some North Sea assets from BP.The firm has managed to renegotiate the terms of this deal. The value of the cash payable upon completion is falling and other payments are being deferred. Nevertheless, it’s still a significant outlay for such an indebted business.To fund the deal, and help improve the state of its balance sheet, analysts reckon PMO is planning to raise funds from shareholders. A figure of £200m has been touted. The firm’s current market capitalisation is only £460m.As such, a cash raise of this size would significantly dilute existing investors and could send PMO shares plunging. However, if the group wants to improve the strength of its balance sheet, management may have no choice.The risk of this dilution taking place suggests it could be sensible for investors to avoid PMO shares for the time being.High risk, high rewardHaving said all of the above, PMO shares could still yield high total returns for investors if oil prices recover, although that’s a big ‘if’ considering the current state of the world economy.If you do believe in the company’s prospects, it may be best to own PMO shares as part of a well-diversified portfolio. Doing so would allow you to benefit from any upside potential while minimising downside risk if the business falls into bankruptcy, or has to ask shareholders for additional funds.center_img I’m sure you’ll agree that’s quite the statement from Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner.But since our US analyst team first recommended shares in this unique tech stock back in 2016, the value has soared.What’s more, we firmly believe there’s still plenty of upside in its future.

The Lloyds share price is up 30% in a month. Here’s what I’d do next

Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge! Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Lloyds (LSE: LLOY) is one of the most heavily traded shares in the London market. But it has had a difficult 2020. Shares fell to depths they last plumbed after the 2008–09 financial crisis. Recently, the Lloyds share price has done well. It has increased around 30% in the past month.The question now is, what to do next?5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…Lloyds remains a solid businessThe share price has been battered as part of a general downwards re-rating of bank stocks in 2020. The cancellation of bank dividends also did not help investor sentiment in the sector.However, I don’t think that really has much to do with Lloyds specifically. It is one of the biggest banking groups in the UK, with fascia including Bank of Scotland and Halifax as well as its eponymous Lloyds business. So in broad terms, its performance should reflect that of the UK economy overall. In a difficult year, the economy continues to show some resilience. The housing market is holding up well, for example.The Lloyds share price masks an improving business performance. The bank returned to profitability in the third quarter, posting a pre-tax profit of £1bn. Its mortgage business is booming. Earlier concerns about the possible impact of the recession on the bank have not come to pass, with impairments now forecast to be at the lower end of the forecast range.That all adds up to a business that seems to be doing well in the current recession. With its well-established brands and reputation, I expect customer demand to continue to be strong too.Why the Lloyds share price looks good to meDespite the bank’s good performance, the shares have not done as well. Even after their surge in the past month, they are still down 40% on where they began the year.I think the shares will continue to move up as the market realises their value. Banks tend to be able to retain customers well due to the complications of switching. A tough economic environment like the current one tends to reward large players who can weather the storm, such as Lloyds. So I expect that its business will prove its resilience further in the next several years, helping the share price.Not paying dividends makes the shares less attractive, but it means it can keep more money inside the business. That should help the future dividend payout pot. Before the pandemic, the bank was on course to pay around 3.3p per share this year. At the current Lloyds share price, the prospective yield is therefore in the high single digits if dividends are restarted at the same level. For a banking stalwart like Lloyds, that is a juicy payout.   I’d buy Lloyds at its current priceI like the strong position Lloyds has in UK retail banking. Its results have held up better this year than expected, which gives confidence for the future. Meanwhile, the lack of a dividend allows it to hoard money so when it does restart dividends I expect a juicy yield.But the shares are still trading at what I think is a bargain price. I’d buy Lloyds shares today and hold them for the recovery. christopherruane has no position in any of the shares mentioned. The Motley Fool UK has recommended Lloyds Banking Group.

The diocese says that they are working for peace and reconciliation at a time when “the media, both print and visual media, sensationalises the news of conflict everywhere fanning further divisions among groups, communities and peoples.”From the new centre, the diocese will run “an all-important and unique initiative of Peace” that covers 60 villages in the areas served by the eight pastorates in Mandapasalai and its neighbourhood – an area within a radius of 25 kilometers.“The program will seek to understand the context of conflict and peace in the area of operation,” the CSI said in a statement. The new scheme will work with the Partners in Peace with Justice Program and provide training for those who want to “work together as citizens of one country.”The Peace Centre was opened this week by the Bishop of Madurai-Ramnad, Dr Marialouis Joseph, and other diocesan officials. Afterwards, a number of community leaders from Mandapasalai attended a public meeting at which Bishop Joseph emphasised “the need of the hour for people of all communities to work together in peace and harmony.”The centre has been opened to create “an increased consciousness on the need to focus on peace with justice rather than on conflict, violence and terror planted and constructed by external forces with vested interests,” the CSI said.

The challenge was to design a country house in the surroundings of the town of Villeta (Colombia), 1.5 hours to the west of Bogotá; at 967 meters above sea level, with a predominantly hot and dry weather all year round. The site’s constraints were very clear; a very steep land that starts at the top of a hill going all the way down to the stream “El Cojo”. The brief asked for a built area of 550m2, including 3 rooms, studio, service and social areas, a terrace and a swimming pool, all this under one essential demand: the house must be able to be completely closed whenever it’s not in use. The place defines completely the conception of the project. We start from two basic elements in architecture:The roof, which protects from the elements, but at the same time serves as a tool to relatedirectly to the surroundings. The roof, clean and horizontal, frames the landscape and protects from sun and rain, while it dilutes the limits between the inside and the outside, between the natural and the man-made. Save this picture!First Floor Plan+ 33The patio, the space that allows us to bring nature into architecture, helps us gain control over the natural elements which would otherwise be alien. The patio generates an intimate scale generating close relations and sensations, in contrast to the long views provided by the mountains. Save this picture!© David UribeSpatially, the house is organized through a succession of voids and blocks that live under the roof, which is open towards the mountains on one side and towards a series of patios on the other. This double spatial relation (patio-roof-mountains) (near-far) generates diversity and richness within the different spaces of the house, providing the opportunity for different use dynamics at different times of day. Save this picture!SketchTowards the road, the house shows itself completely closed, providing privacy and generating expectation as to what happens inside. You enter through an intentionally low and narrow block, which enriches the expectation; crossing the threshold, the preception changes; the space opening up through a patio that frames the uninterrupted view of the mountains. From the entrance, the platform that holds the social areas seems to float between the water feature at the entrance and the swimming pool; once again allowing the natural elements to dominate the space The social areas appear as a unique space, open towards the mountains on one side and to the entrance patio on the other. The character of this space is defined, simultaneously, by a second patio, framed by a void in the roof. Centered in this patio lives an Acacia, whose foliage will protect from the sun, while it marks the meeting point of the two main axes of the house (entrance – swimming pool & kitchen – rooms). It is the heart of the house. Save this picture!© David UribeAt the east, around the dining area, we find the kitchen and service areas that appear as a lower block, subtly inserted under the main roof. The opposite wing houses the private areas for the rooms, which face the mountains and are articulated by a third patio that, proposing a completely different character, is defined by a permeable wall made in prefabricated concrete blocks and an exhuberant native garden The facade brings an essential question to the nature of the project: how to generate completely open spaces that can be closed off when not in use? For all the areas of the house (private and social), timber screen panels were designed in order for them to slide or pivot and allow for closing off or opening up the space 100%. The house is oriented north-south, protecting the long/open facades from the sun while taking advantage of the beautiful views towards the mountains and the stream. This also allows for the swimming pool and terrace areas to have permanent exposure to the sun, morning and afternoon, without being interrupted by the shadow of the house. The project uses noble materials, expresses its materiality, construction process and natural composition. The predominant use of ocre tinted in situ concrete and teak generates an array of textures, colours and shadows that change with sunlight. All the textures are defined by 2 modules, 5 and 10 cms, expressed in all the elements, from the timber formwork for the concrete to the teak elements in the wooden panels all the way through to the prefabricated elements that enclose the patio. Save this picture!© David UribeThe walls and slabs are built by using in situ concrete, and the ocre tone achieved by using a mix of white cement and sand from Ambalema; the formwork was built with Tabebuia timber. The other predominant material is teak (from sustainable forests), used indistictively as facade, furniture or floor finish. The floors, aiming to keep uniformity with the tone of the roof, are mostly built in sandstone. The finish for the swimming pool was achieved by generating a pattern inspired in the surrounding forest’s blue-green colours, using 20x20cm tiles, de-toned and hand painted. Save this picture!© David UribeThe main sustainibity strategy comes from the spatial distribution and orientation of the project; the north-south bar scheme minimizes direct solar gain on the facades while it allows cross ventilation to all the areas (private and social), minimizing the need for mechanical ventilation. For further insulation, the flat roof was built using a ventilated waffle slab and un upper white gravel finish. The project recycles rain water for vegetation and has a solar panel heating system for the water in the swimming pool. Construction materials are mostly local and natural (stone, renewable timber and concrete) and th construction was developed using local workforce.Save this picture!© David UribeProject gallerySee allShow lessDedalo Minosse International Prize for Commissioning a BuildingArchitecture NewsTYIN tegnestue Releases Downloadable Guide to Design/Build in Underprivileged AreasArchitecture News Share “COPY” Casa 7A / Arquitectura en Estudio + Natalia HerediaSave this projectSaveCasa 7A / Arquitectura en Estudio + Natalia Heredia ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/506104/casa-7a-arquitectura-en-estudio-natalia-heredia Clipboard Architects: Arquitectura en Estudio, Natalia Heredia Area Area of this architecture projectcenter_img CopyAbout this officeArquitectura en EstudioOfficeFollowNatalia HerediaOfficeFollowProductsWoodGlassConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesVilletaTop100Arquitectura en EstudioColombiaPublished on May 18, 2014Cite: “Casa 7A / Arquitectura en Estudio + Natalia Heredia” 18 May 2014.

first_imgHome / Featured / Carrington Charitable Foundation Inaugural Gala Supports Veterans Carrington Charitable Foundation Inaugural Gala Supports Veterans Related Articles Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Carrington Charitable Foundation (CCF), the nonprofit organization of The Carrington Companies, hosted its inaugural Gala on Saturday, June 3, 2017, at the Belle Haven Club in Greenwich, Connecticut against the backdrop of the Long Island Sound. The first annual event raised more than $500,000 to support Veterans returning from post-9/11 battlefields through CCF initiatives.These initiatives will provide three separate areas of support, the first being mobility. CCF financially supports The Veterans Airlift Command (VAC). The VAC provides free private air transportation to wounded Veterans from Iraq and Afghanistan conflict areas through a national network of volunteer aircraft owners and pilots.The second area of support is stability—Carrington House provides custom, adaptive homes for catastrophically injured Veterans; and the final area is to enrich Veteran’s sense of purpose and prosperity, which supports Veterans’ return to civilian life after their time of service through their newest initiative, the Veteran Support Program.“We couldn’t be more pleased with the results of the Gala, and we are deeply grateful for the generosity of our donors for their support of the Carrington Charitable Foundation mission and the wounded Veterans we serve,” said Shelly Lawrence, Executive Director of Community Relations, Carrington Charitable Foundation. “Our commitment to supporting our military heroes has been strengthened by the success of this inaugural event.”In addition to the Gala, CCF also hosts the Carrington Charitable Foundation Annual Golf Classic at The Resort at Pelican Hill in Newport Beach, California. The 2017 event will take place October 9, 2017.

The Act therefore imposed an absolute prohibition on sex determination tests and mandated that pre-natal testing techniques could be used only for specific purposes such as determination of genetic abnormalities. The Act mandates compulsory registration of all diagnostic laboratories, all genetic counselling centres, genetic laboratories, genetic clinics and ultrasound clinics.Rule 8 deals with the application for re-registration of a genetic lab and clinic including an ultrasound lab by the AA (Appropriate Authority).The AA after enquiry and examining whether the clinic etc has been complying with the P-C & PNDT Act and rules,can renew the registration for 5 years. Rule 9(8) states that each genetic or ultra sound clinic or imaging centre etc shall send a complete report of all pre-conception and pregnancy-related procedures conducted by them to the AA every month.Rule 18A requires the AA to send quarterly reports to the Government and to maintain full information of all the registrations in the specified Form H.The petitioner, represented by Senior Advocate Sanjay Parikh, contended that the suspension of the provisions diluted the provisions of the PC-PNDT Act, which was enacted to remedy the social evil of female foeticide.”This illegal suspension of Rules, while medical establishments continue to function, will provide avenues for misuse of technology for purposes of sex-selection and sex-determination, and will result in a loss of the gains made in the strict implementation of the Act”, the petition stated.Click here to download OrderRead Order Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.
