Fees

2019 – 2020 Equestrian Tasmania Fee Structure

Membership renewal for the 2019/2020 financial year is now open. 

Thank you for your ongoing support of Equestrian Tasmania (ETAS). Your membership supports the continued improvement of the equestrian sport within Tasmania and the services we offer to our members and sport disciplines. 

The 2019/20 financial year will see membership fees remain the same. 

Your levies continue to provide you with comprehensive insurance cover through Gow Gates – Equestrian Australia’s insurers. It is important to note that EA has slightly reduced the insurance levy per (membership) category to reflect actual costs of insurance, plus associated costs for managing and administering the insurance. This was actioned at the request of the states following concern that an excessive profit element had been built into the EA insurance levy.

The reduction in the EA insurance component has been redistributed to the EA Administration levy to provide a realistic usage of branch levies and in addition, the administration levy has attracted an additional increase of 1.3%, in line with CPI. 

Before completing your membership, please take the time to read the following information on our website to ensure you select the right membership category for you.
