The case of the closure of the LAN eSport halls in Italy was heavily resized by a note released by the Customs and Monopoly Agency (ADM). The case, which emerged yesterday, had cast a shadow over the entire Italian sector. The ADM note, however, clarifies the extent of the administrative seizures prepared which concern only a small part of the commercial businesses active in Italy. Here are all the details on the matter:
ADM’s note on the closure of LAN eSport halls in Italy
The Customs and Monopoly Agency clarified that the transaction involved a total of four commercial outlets. One of these was found to be in good standing and was therefore able to continue to carry out his business regularly. According to the investigations, some LAN halls for eSports did not comply with the necessary tax levies on gaming and had not correctly applied the legislation aimed at the protection and health of minors.
There are no risks for the sector
The activities of the LAN rooms for eSports and trade fairs will be able to continue their business regularly. ADM, in fact, clarified that: “all sector events, including thematic fairs and gaming in the LAN rooms themselves, are in no way prejudiced if carried out in compliance with the sector rules and that the news disseminated is not respond to the reality of the facts “. Commercial businesses and businesses in good standing will therefore be able to continue to provide the services in a normal way.
