ISO Member Form - 2020/21 League Players Version

Great news – Gift Aid with effectively cheaper member fees & free gifts this season:

- HMRC have approved ISO Badminton Club as CASC (Charity) from 27 June 2019, therefore if you are a taxpayer, you may receive tax refund or claim tax relief on donations i.e. the session fees which we designated as donations & any extra donations you volunteer, from this date. Effectively you may pay 25% less when play at ISO, depends on your tax rate band.

- ISO benefits from the donations, and as partly sponsored by iBadds, we will invest further to the club. Also, in return to club members with great support, we likely give out something free of charge – a large badminton bag, as well as some masks and sanitizer for safety considering current situation.
