If a sports club registers with HMRC as a Community Amateur Sports Club (CASC) it can benefit from various tax advantages, for example claiming back tax on Gift Aid donations, tax relief on the Corporation Tax paid on income and capital gains, and non-domestic rates relief. The CASC scheme is open to qualifying sports clubs in other European Member States or relevant territories as well as clubs in the UK. To register, the club has to meet certain conditions. The HMRC CASC Unit decides whether the conditions for registration have been met. CASC status is only available to clubs involved in eligible sports as decided by the Sports Council. Thus, although your organisation cannot provide the incentives directly, it can draw the users attention to the breaks available.
