CASCs and Club Structures
One simple way that may help your club save money is by considering your club structure. For example, Community Amateur Sports Clubs (CASCs) are a government initiatives to help save clubs money by offering a range of tax reliefs and the ability to claim ‘Gift Aid’ on donations made to the club, thereby making the club money too. For more information on CASCs and other club structures please see FA Club Structures Guide (in the documents section below).
