Community benefit statements

Clubs with 51 or more gaming machines are required to submit a community benefit statement to the Office of Liquor and Gaming Regulation (OLGR) as part of their annual reporting responsibilities.

The purpose of the community benefit statement is to more formally identify the type and extent of contributions made by clubs to charitable, sporting, recreational and other community initiatives. This shows some of the benefits the community derives from gaming.

Contributions of both a cash and non-cash nature are identified with dollar values in the table below. For calculating the value of non-cash benefits, OLGR advises clubs to apply standard market rates, purchase prices and amounts for administrative and operating expenses involved (i.e. in providing goods and services).

An ‘affiliated entity’ is either an entity recognised under the club's constitution or one that has similar objectives and a traditional relationship or arrangement with the club. An entity not fitting this description is regarded as a ‘non-affiliated entity’.

Note: As the community benefit statement is not subject to audit, OLGR relies on clubs for the accuracy of the details they provide.
