The Telegraph recently reported an interesting tax tribunal case, involving the interpretation of belly dancing as to whether it is a sport or not.
Audrey Cheruvier, director of the Fleur Estelle Belly Dance School, argued that her courses were educational because belly dancing was taught as a sport.
Had her argument been upheld, she would not be liable for VAT .
However, the tribunal ruled that it was recreational rather than educational; and as such she was liable for £53K in tax dating back to June 2009.
Tax does have to be taxing.
