Kathmandu Collects 8.4 Million In Tax From Five Casinos In One Week


Within just a week, the Kathmandu Metropolitan City Office revealed that it had collected around 8.4 million Nepalese Rupees from five casinos in the region. Only two casinos are left to pay off the tax to the local government.

A seven-day deadline was given to the casinos to pay the taxes, or they would have to face sanctions. According to the city municipal government, failure to pay the tax amount will result in legal action

A letter to the seven casinos in Kathmandu was sent in the first week of September. The revenue department in the city ordered the casinos to pay the entertainment tax within a week. The city’s chief of the Revenue Department, Shivaraj Adhikari, said that the casinos had not sent taxes since the fiscal year of 2018 – 1019.

Under the province’s Financial Act, every casino must pay the local government 50 Nepalese Rupees as entertainment tax for each customer, stated Adhikari. The letters were sent out by the Kathmandu Metropolitan City as the casino owners were refusing to answer calls from the government bodies.

  2. Casino Palace, Hotel De L’ Annapurna

  6. Bally’s Nepal Casino, Malla Hotel

The remaining two casinos that are yet to pay the entertainment taxes are:

  1. Casino Rad, Radisson Hotel
