MAKING TAX DIGITAL (MTD).
HMRC have released further information on the new Making Tax Digital (MTD) for VAT requirements. Rugby clubs that are VAT registered with taxable supplies above £85,000pa, will generally have to keep records digitally, and provide information to HMRC using specialised functional compatible software for VAT reporting. There are generally no exemptions if a rugby club is a CASC or a charity, so these clubs (if applicable) should check their current accounting and record keeping procedures regularly. This will ensure that they will be in compliance with the requirements of MTD for VAT which is due to come into force on 1st April 2019.

It is with deep personal regret that I have to inform you of the death of Richard Wormell RIP.
Richard would have been well known to the whole Warwickshire rugby family having given so much time to our great game as a referee well into his latter years and the Warwickshire Society of Referees Committee itself.
Richard was also heavily involved in Colts rugby with the County and a very committed member of the Warwickshire RFU committee fulfilling several roles over the years including being our County President a few years ago.
He was also past Chairman and Bar Chairman of Old Leamingtonians RFC and served on their committee.
A good personal friend and my heartfelt condolences go out to his long time partner Alex and their families.
May He Rest In Peace, Charlie McGinty, WRFU HonSecretary.
