Due to changes in Tax Law, as published by HMRC, we must change our constitution to continue to be a 'non-profit organisation'.  

'Non-Profit Organisations' is not recognised by HMRC.  For all intents and purposes, applicable to us, we are now a 'unincorporated association'.  If the club makes a profit, then we must pay corporation tax.  We can only accept donations (game night fees or event tickets) from members.  With that in mind please find the original constitution rule followed by the amendment in red.

Article 1
Para 3
1.   The club will be a non-profit organisation.

to

The club will be an unincorporated association, with a non profit aim.

 

Article 2
Para 1: Eligibility: Membership shall be open to any person over the age of 18 upon payment of the dues for at least one game, as outlined in Section C, and submission of full name and at least one contact method.

to

Eligibility: Membership shall be open to any person over the age of 18 upon payment of the dues for at least one game, as outlined in Paragraph 3, and submission of full name and at least one contact method.

 

Para 2: Non-member attendees:
1. The club facilities and equipment shall be made available to non-members.
2.  Attendees should be over 18 and must be over 16. 16-17’s is at the discretion of officers.
3.  Under 16’s may visit the club before 8pm if accompanied by an adult.

2.  Attendees should be over 18 and must be over 16. 16-17’s is at the discretion of officers.
3.  Under 16’s may visit the club before 8pm if accompanied by an adult.
4.  Under 16's and adult guests of members can be allowed to use the club facilities.

 

These amendments should allow us to continue to operate as before, and be compliant with the rules from HMRC.
