Sports Aid is an grant scheme to help individual sports people reach their full potential. The grant aid can take one of two basic forms:
- a traditional sports aid grant given predominantly to youngsters, aged 12-16 years, in the form of direct financial help; and
- through TASS, the talented athlete scheme, help takes the form of tailored services for the athlete.
Tax breaks for sports clubs
Good news for amateur sports clubs. You can now benefit from valuable tax relief by registering either as a charity with the Charity Commission or as a Community Amateur Sports Club (CASC) (CASC) with the Inland Revenue.
