Tax & Legal

The TBA understands how tax and legal matters can be complex. The TBA works proactively with lawyers and industry authorities to ensure that up to date support for members is provided.


The TBA have released a new version of the invaluable Bloodstock Tax Guide as of May 2024.  This document seeks to offer an overview of tax issues that affect breeders but does not replace specialist advice on particular issues. We continue to advise that members search the HMRC website for relevant manuals and the TBA also offers access to specialist tax and VAT advisors as part of the membership benefit.  To access a free consultation with retained experts please contact the TBA office initially (01638 661321).
