The following Value Added Tax guidance note Produced by Tolley provides comprehensive and up to date tax information covering:
This guidance note provides an overview of the VAT rules relating to community amateur sports clubs (CASC).
This scheme was introduced in 2002 and it enables local amateur sports clubs to register for tax reliefs with HMRC providing they meet certain conditions.
It is important to note that if a club is registered under the CASC scheme then it is not entitled to register as a charity. Therefore it is important that the club determines whether it is more suitable for it to become a CASC or a registered charity. However if the club registers as a CASC and later decides that it more appropriate to become a charity then it can wind down the CASC and transfer the trade and assets to a new charity.
HMRC has indicated that it does not consider that if a CASC is already registered as a charity it is likely to obtain any additional benefit from joining the scheme.
It is important to note that inclusion in the CASC scheme is intended to be permanent and a CASC should not request that it is removed from the scheme and it cannot withdraw an application to join the scheme once its been submitted to HMRC. Therefore a club should ensure that CASC is the right for the club before it submits its application to HMRC. HMRC is obligated to register the club as a CASC if it meets the eligibility criteria.
