Thread: Dog breeding and the tax man.

  1. #1

    Dog breeding and the tax man.

    Something I have often wondered about but are the proceeds of the sale of pups taxable.

    Is an amateur ' I will just let her have a litter' breeder just as tax liable as the professional dog breeder ??

    Yep. As it the stuff you sell on ebay.......

    Section 161 of the Highways Act 1980 (England & Wales) makes it an offence to discharge a firearm within 50 ft of the centre of a highway with vehicular rights without lawful authority or excuse, if as a result a user of the highway is injured, interrupted or endangered.

    All income is liable to tax.
    It's the calibre of the shooter that counts not the calibre of the rifle.

    Surley by the time you havce deducted expenses.

    Vets bills
    Puppy food
    New carpet
    Replaced chewed funiture
    Advertising costs
    ect ect

    Then you arguably may be able to show that you didnt actually make any profit, hence no tax liable.

    Very few will make any money from breeding dogs if they do it right so the tax liability is negligible, but technically all income is liable to taxation even if that income is earned abroad (residency considered).

    I may be wrong, but I'm not sure that's quite how HMRC would see it.

    My understanding was you could only deduct costs if registered as a business.

    Section 161 of the Highways Act 1980 (England & Wales) makes it an offence to discharge a firearm within 50 ft of the centre of a highway with vehicular rights without lawful authority or excuse, if as a result a user of the highway is injured, interrupted or endangered.

    You can deduct all costs associated with raising a litter up to break even. I.e. you cant claim anything over the revenue created selling the dogs therefore a break even situation that doesnt attract UK tax.
    If youre a business that doesnt apply as all costs can be claimed.
