Charity and registered community sports club relief

2. Eligibility

Community Amateur Sports Clubs

Amateur sports clubs who don't wish to apply for charitable status can apply for a package of tax reliefs. They're available from the Inland Revenue.

To qualify for the relief your club must:

  • be open to the whole community
  • be organised on an amateur basis
  • have as its main purpose providing facilities for, and promoting participation in, one or more eligible sports

Charity Relief

Registered charities can apply for a mandatory relief of 80%.

To qualify for the relief your charity must occupy a property and use it wholly or mainly for charitable purposes.
