star this property answer text <p>The Government recognises the valuable contribution horseracing makes to rural economies across Britain. A recent economic impact study commissioned by Scottish Racing found that the Scottish horseracing industry generated £302 million in revenues in 2016, sustains 3,430 jobs, and generates £30m of tax revenues per annum. Further detail is provided in Scottish Racing’s 2016 Annual Review: http://www.scottishracing.co.uk/annual-review/</p><p>In April 2017 the Government implemented reforms to the Horserace Betting Levy, which extended the Levy to offshore online operators. This is expected to result in a significant increase in Levy income for the benefit of the sport across the whole of Britain.</p> more like this
