Clubs are eligible for tax relief benefits by registering as a Community Amateur Sports Club (CASC) with H&M Revenue and Customs (HMRC).
These tax reliefs include Gift Aid, a way to maximise the value of any voluntary donations. It means your sports club can reclaim tax so that for every pound donated, you can claim an extra 25p.
Over 6,500 clubs are now registered as CASC and they have benefitted from over £130 million in savings since 2002.
Both clubs with or without property can benefit with tax relief in a number of ways that will be outlined in Chapter Two.
