Peru's Congress has voted to legalize online gambling and sports betting in the country, establishing a new regulated framework for the sectors.
The approval came on 15 July, after a parliamentary debate. A law to approve the verticals received 91 votes in favor and zeroed opposing voices.
The new law will become the responsibility of the Ministry of Foreign Trade and Tourism of Peru (Mincetur), the country's foreign trade body, which will also regulate its enactment in Peru.
The gaming tax will be set at 12% of each operator's tax base – which is net income minus maintenance . . .
