Significant tax deductions aimed at the development of domestic sport are directed from the bookmakers to the budget. However, in 2020 the average return on costs of the TOP 10 bookmakers shows a decrease in income per ruble spent. At the same time, revenue and net profit demonstrated the growth.

Information agency Credinform has prepared a ranking of the betting companies. The largest enterprises (TOP-10) in terms of annual revenue were selected according to the data from the Statistical Register and the Federal Tax Service for the available periods (2018-2020). Then the companies were ranged by return on costs ratio (Table 1). The selection and analysis were based on the data from the Information and Analytical system Globas.

Return on costs (%) is the share of earnings before tax and the sum of production and sales costs. The ratio shows the income per ruble spent.

For the most full and fair opinion about the company’s financial position, the whole set of financial indicators and ratios of the company should be taken into account.
