Dear 5-A-Side Captains, Players & Teams.

RE: Match Fee & VAT – Summer Season 2011.                                  March 2011.

 

Dear 5-A-Side Captains & Players,

 

Recently, HMRC have changed the VAT rules regarding small sided football leagues.   Please see the copy of letter below.  Nineteen years of trading and numerous inspections by senior Tax Officers, have seen match fees from our 5-A-Side Leagues as being exempt from VAT.  With the growing number of 5-A-Side Leagues being set up and administered throughout the Country, it is clear that the treasury sees this as another revenue stream to help reduce the national debt.

 

With regret, we have to raise the price of the match fees to help cover the cost of this VAT ruling – i.e. 20% of match fees and registration fees going to the treasury.  We have not passed on all the extra burden onto our 5-A-Side members.  Please rest assured that we still remain competitive with our pricing especially when all other 5-A-Side & sports leagues up and down the Country will have to look at their pricing to meet the burden of this VAT ruling.

 

The VAT on £29 is £4.83 and we are asking each team to contribute a further £2 which is £1.66 net of VAT.  £4.83 less £1.66 leaves Bentham Country Club taking a hit of £3.17 per team on a £29 match fee and £2.84 on a £27 match fee.  It is with deepest regret we have to increase prices but we have no option as we will be losing £24,000 plus per annum to just pay the VAT.  If you have 6 players the increase works out at approx 33p extra per player.  This works out at 45 games @33p = £14.85 if you play summer & winter. 

 

I would like to thank all of our members, whether new or long serving for their continued support of the Leagues and making them the success that they are.

 

Yours sincerely

 

 

Tony Markham

Proprietor
