Background on ClubGRANTS

The ClubGRANTS scheme (formerly Community Development Support Expenditure or CDSE) was introduced in 1998 by the NSW Government and allows clubs to claim a tax deduction of up to 2.25% on gaming machine revenue over $1 million for monies spent on community support.

The program specifically recognises the valuable role played by registered clubs in their local communities and provides the NSW Government with an effective method of rewarding clubs for the support they provide to these communities.

Clubs that earn over $1 million annually in gaming machine revenue provide funding for community projects and services, and in turn receive dollar-for-dollar gaming tax deductions. In 2010, clubs reported ClubGRANTS (formerly CDSE) expenditure of over $63 million across New South Wales. ClubGRANTS clubs provided $66.2 million in ClubGRANTS funds in the 2010-2011 gaming machine year (1 Sept 2010 to 31 August 2011) and were entitled to claim a rebate for $40.4 million of those funds.
