CASC YCB Club Development Seminar

  1. 1. www.plummer-parsons.co.uk/casc Community Amateur Sports Club Scheme (CASC) Maximising your club’s income through Gift Aid ECB Club Development Seminar - Tuesday 9 November 2010 Neville Beckhurst – Partner, Plummer Parsons Sports
  2. 2. www.plummer-parsons.co.uk/casc CASC FACTS • ‘The ECB is a huge supporter of the CASCs as the scheme has saved over £1.3m for cricket clubs alone since 2002.’ David Collier CEO ECB • Main benefits include 80% off business rates and the use of Gift Aid. • Estimated that £60m per year is lost by sports clubs not registered and also clubs that are registered but not using Gift Aid. • Only 10% of registered CASCs are utilising Gift Aid!
  3. 3. www.plummer-parsons.co.uk/casc UNDERSTANDING GIFT AID • Works for CASCs in same way as it does for Charities. • Donations made from individuals to the CASC enable the club to claim a further 28% from the Government. (25% from 5 April 2011). • Tax relief for donors if higher rate tax payers. • CASCs can go back to claim Gift Aid on donations made for the past four years, if not previously claimed, up to the point of registration with the CASC scheme.
  4. 4. www.plummer-parsons.co.uk/casc WAYS TO MAXIMISE GIFT AID Setting the level of junior subscriptions to a lower level and asking for the difference to be made as a voluntary donation. Example: Current Junior subscription = £30 per year Revise to £5 subscription and £25 donation (parents still paying same amount) If 100 juniors @ £25 donation = £2,500 total donations, therefore: Gift Aid repayment to club £2,500 x 28% = £700 (per year)
  5. 5. www.plummer-parsons.co.uk/casc WAYS TO MAXIMISE GIFT AID Foregone expenses such as mileage incurred by club volunteers can be claimed and then gifted back to club under Gift Aid. Volunteers would include unpaid coaches, groundsmen, committee members, scorers & umpires. Example: Club with 15 volunteers clocked up 3,000 miles between them over course of a year. 40p per mile is claimed. 3,000 miles @ 40p = £1,200 – if all gift back to club Gift Aid can be claimed of: Gift Aid repayment to club £1,200 x 28% = £336 (per year).
  6. 6. www.plummer-parsons.co.uk/casc WAYS TO MAXIMISE GIFT AID • Sponsorship of members who raise funds for the club by way of participating in activities such as running in marathons, sponsored swims or other similar fund raising qualify in full for Gift Aid. • Offering a taster day to potential new members, providing the club’s facilities and perhaps coaching etc and suggesting a donation to the club for a current fundraising project. • Where certain objects being auctioned have a readily ascertainable value, yet the price is in excess of this value, the excess can be treated as a voluntary donation and therefore eligible for Gift Aid. • Fundraising events such as dinners, balls, concerts and raffles can set ticket entry to a level which enables the club to break even with a suggested donation, which could be claimed under Gift Aid. • Vice Presidents are not required to pay membership subscription but often they will make donation so this should be claimed under Gift Aid.
  7. 7. www.plummer-parsons.co.uk/casc CASE STUDY Glynde & Beddingham CC • Registered as a CASC in 2005 used Gift Aid to raise funds whilst undertaking clubhouse extension. • Gained over £3,000 in Gift Aid repayments over 2 years. • After maximising the Gift Aid opportunities club now achieves repayments in excess of £1,000 per year. • Helped fund new covers and a mobile net.
  8. 8. www.plummer-parsons.co.uk/casc HOW PLUMMER PARSONS CAN HELP • Free advice for clubs to determine savings that can be made. • Guide clubs through registration process if not yet registered. • Have unique experience on CASC scheme and have assisted many sports clubs throughout the UK ensuring Gift Aid opportunities are maximised. • As it is important that clubs have necessary documentation to back up the Gift Aid claims we have therefore produced our own unique designated Maximising Gift Aid pack. • Clubs worked with have achieved Gift Aid repayments of between £500 up to £5,000 per year. • Ongoing relationship and support for club to ensure it is utilising all the financial opportunities available.
