The reasons why the Isle of Man is such an attractive jurisdiction for
e-Gaming Companies

The Isle of Man has become the jurisdiction of choice for the establishment and administration of a growing number of e-Gaming companies. Some of the most influential operators in the industry are now based in the Island and the number of e-Gaming license holders is steadily increasing. There are many factors which have led to the Island gaining this leading position:

  • The Isle of Man has international recognition as a first rate regulated jurisdiction
  • 100% protection of player funds
  • Zero rate of corporate taxation and no capital gains tax
  • Low betting and gaming duty
  • World-class telecoms infrastructure including two self-healing rings serving the Isle of Man, with anti-DDOS attack technology
  • Fully self-sufficient power infrastructure which is supported by diverse sub-sea interconnector gas and electricity supplies
  • It has high quality support services (legal, accountancy and corporate services) with expertise in e-Gaming
  • Excellent support service providers in hosting, IT and digital media
  • The Isle of Man Government is committed to the on-going development of the e-Gaming sector
  • Government grants available for up to 40% towards costs of relocation, marketing, hardware and software
  • Its reputation as an ideal jurisdiction for AIM, ISDX Market or FTSE stock market listings
  • Isle of Man entities applying for a UK gambling licence are exempted from the requirement to have a UK corporate footprint and to appoint a UK resident Fiscal Representative
