Tax Workshop

The tax authorities are currently targeting those who work and volunteer in sport – clubs and coaches.

Our four hour interactive training workshops will help you to pass a tax inspection and ensure that you won’t end up paying significant sums in back tax, penalties and interest.

We are running a tax workshop for sport in your area:

Tuesday 17th June from 10am to 2pm 

Stratford Sports Club
Swans Nest Lane
Stratford Upon Avon
CV37 7LS

The workshop will show you how to:

  • Pay coaches, casual staff, players and children, to comply with HMRC requirements
  • Ensure your self-employed workers don’t get reclassified as employees and land you with a big fine
  • Keep accurate and legible bookkeeping records (you can be fined for poor record-keeping)
  • Ensure that you set your club/business up in the right way to minimise liability
  • Claim the correct expenses (especially important for coaches)
  • Meet your ‘reasonable care’ obligations to ensure your insurance pays out if things go wrong

Thousands of coaches, administrators and volunteers have already attended our workshops
 and they are approved/recommended by National Governing Bodies such as the Lawn Tennis Association, British Gymnastics, and British Cycling. You can view feedback we have had from our delegates split by sport by visiting out website.

Places cost just £49 per person per course.
