Forecasts for betting and gaming tax receipts are published by the Office for Budget Responsibility (OBR). However, the OBR does not publish a breakdown of projected revenues from the 7 individual betting and gaming duties due to the disclosive nature of the underlying data; doing so would contravene taxpayer confidentiality rules due to the limited number of operators in certain areas of the market.
