The court was asked whether business customers of betting exchanges may be required to pay a horse race betting levy. If they are bookmakers within the meaning of the Betting, Gaming and Lotteries Act 1963, then the Horserace Betting Levy Board, the respondent, is entitled to impose a levy on them. Customers of a betting exchange will fall within the statutory definition of a bookmaker if they carry on the business of ‘receiving or negotiating bets’.

The appellant challenged a finding that the recycled material it produced was subject to Landfill Tax. The company took waste material. Unrecycleable material was used as landfill, and the tax paid. Other material was recycled, and sold on. The landfill company also bought some of this material for use in road making and landscaping. The commissioners sought to charge Landfill Tax.
Held: The material sold was not waste within the Act when sold. The Commissioners contended that it was waste when taken in. However at that time other conditions precedent to the material being taxable did not apply. The Act was intended to promote exactly what the company was doing, and to tax it would go directly against the purpose of the Act. The conditions of the subsection had to be satisfied at the same time, and in this case were not. Appeal allowed.
