Community Amateur Sports Clubs registered with HMRC are eligible for 80% Mandatory relief (Licensed and Unlicensed). There is no Discretionary Relief available and 20% is due and payable. If you feel you may be eligible for this type of relief detailed above please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or by telephone 01389 737737.
100% Discretionary Relief is available to Recreational/Sports clubs not licensed to sell alcohol. Applicants should submit a completed application form along with copies of their constitution and latest audited accounts. These are examined to establish that the applicant is a bona fide sports or recreational Club, and that no income from the sale of alcohol, tobacco, etc., appears in the accounts.
Available to organisations constituted as Private Members Clubs and licensed to sell alcohol. Copies of accounts and constitution are required. Accounts should relate to the base year for Re-valuation, currently 2007/2008. If these are not available, accounts for subsequent years can be index-linked to 2007/2008. The gross turnover figures for bar, food, gaming and tobacco should be entered. The Council will then calculate the non-licensed element of Rateable Value. This is the figure on which relief may be awarded.
