Incorporation, Charitable Clubs & Gift Aid

Incorporation, Charitable Clubs & Gift Aid

To date, we’ve supported the incorporation of over 40 sports organisations across Scotland. This includes semi-professional football clubs such as Annan Athletic (as a Community Benefit Society), Dunbar United (as a Community Interest Company) and multiple amateur grassroots clubs of all sports and sizes (as Scottish Charitable Incorporated Organisations).

Our support includes assistance selecting the right legal structure for your club, drafting a suitable constitution for that legal structure, application to the regulator and transferring assets to the new entity. We have club-specific rules/constitutions pre-approved by regulators which can make the process more manageable, not to mention huge experience in the field.

We can often support clubs through the entire process for as little as £1000 (although a final sum will depend on any complexities/specific requests your club might have – e.g. if the club is creating subsidiaries).

Community Amateur Sport Club Registration

Community Amateur Sport Club Registration

If your sports club is eligible, you can become a community amateur sports club (CASC). You’ll get:

  • tax relief on income, gains and profits from some activities
  • Gift Aid repayments on donations
  • business rates relief

We can help register your club as a CASC and start claiming Gift Aid through HMRC.
