Relief for sports clubs

Licensed sports club relief

The amount of relief we give is variable and is calculated using the club’s income from bar takings, food, gaming and tobacco sales and the rateable value of the property. Some licensed clubs may not qualify if their income is too high.

Unlicensed sports club relief

We give 100% relief to unlicensed sports clubs.

Community amateur sports clubs

Clubs registered with HMRC as a Community amateur sports club will get 80% relief. More information is available at

How to apply

You can use our online form to make a new application or to complete your annual review. If you are applying for licensed or unlicensed sports relief, you will be asked to provide the following evidence as part of your application or annual review:

  • a copy of your most recent accounts 
  • a copy of your constitution and rules 

You can upload a scan, PDF or photo of your evidence. Please make sure all details can be seen clearly before uploading your evidence.

We aim to process your application within 10 working days. Due to current volumes of customer contact and correspondence, there may be a delay to this timescale.
