Community Amateur Sports Clubs

Local amateur sports clubs are able to register with the HM Revenue & Customs and the Charities Commission as Community Amateur Sports Clubs (CASCs) and benefit from a range of tax reliefs, including rate relief.

In order to qualify the organisation must be able to satisfy certain criterias before they can be given CASC status. The Club/organisation must be able to demonstrate that they:

  • are open to the whole community - Membership of the club is open to all without discrimination, the club's facilities are available to members without discrimination, and any fees are set at a level that does not pose a significant obstacle to membership or use of the club's facilities.
  • are organised on an amateur basis
  • have as their main purpose providing facilities for, and promoting participation in one or more eligible sports

Once the club/organisation have been granted CASC status they become entitle to mandatory rate relief (given to all registered charities) which at present is an 80% reduction of their Non Domestic Rates Charge.
