Are you CASC registered?

If so, are you confident that your club will comply with the new more stringent requirements of CASC going forward, for instance the ability to account for bar sales to members separately from opposition / non-members, that your annual cost to play is within everyone’s reach, and that you have more playing members than non-playing members?  Make sure you are aware of the changes on the HMRC web site.

If you have any questions, ECB have said the Tax Consultant they use, Richard Baldwin of,, is excellent and would be able to support queries you may have.  I see that the RFU have done some excellent work and their web site has some very helpful resources too.

The 2015 Dinner on Friday 13th November was a great success. We offer great thanks to Tony Cottee who entertained all in attendance with a fine entertaining speech and Howard Smith for his Master of Ceremony role.

Chris Willetts deservedly won the Cricketer of the Year Award for his great services to Blackheath and leading them to victory in The National Knockout this year. Hugh Bernard (Folkestone) won Young Player of the Year, Luke Blackaby (Holmesdale) Player of the Season and Howard Smith the Tony Levick Award for his great contributions to the League.
