Following the changes to the Community Amateur Sports Club (CASC) scheme which came into effect on 31st March 2015, HMRC has now closed the HMRC CASC Forum, of which the BGA was a member. Although the HMRC CASC Forum has ceased, the BGA will continue to work with other sports, the Sport and Recreation Alliance (S&RA) and HMRC.
The BGA Development Committee would like to thank everybody who took the time to respond to our emails over the last three years. Thanks to the evidence supplied by clubs, gliding was given one of only 19 places for sport on the HMRC CASC Forum and we managed to make some changes to the scheme (such as the inclusion of life members and some critical wording in the regulations). Club input to BGA responses to consultations is what enables gliding to continue to punch above our collective weight in these situations. Thank you.
