England Golf have made a couple of further amends to the Play Safe ‘Playing Framework’ above.  The changes cover the need to wear face coverings in shops and changes to the use of locker rooms. These are both in light of changes to government guidance coming into place this weekend.

 We have marked changes are in blue to help people to find the relevant section more easily. 

Also following the recent statement by the Chancellor of the Exchequer, England Golf has sought clarity on the application of measures to golf clubs and facilities. A summary of our understanding on these areas is below.

Reduction of VAT

·  The reduction from 20% to 5% comes into force from Wednesday 15 July 2020.

·  The reduced vat rate of 5% does apply to supplies of qualifying foods/drinks served in golf clubhouses and associated catering facilities

·  The reduced rate of 5% does not apply to green fees but only for entry fees on the government attraction list. So green fees will still need to be charged at 20% for proprietary clubs (private member or not for profit clubs do not charge VAT anyway) .

Full information and guidance can be found by visiting the Government’s website here -  https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/revenue-and-customs-brief-10-2020-temporary-reduced-rate-of-vat-for-hospitality-holiday-accommodation-and-attractions/guidance-on-the-temporary-reduced-rate-of-vat-for-hospitality-holiday-accommodation-and-attractions

Eat Out to Help Out Discount Scheme

· Golf clubs are eligible to be a part of the 50% meal discount scheme on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays during August

· Clubs/ businesses must register to be a part of the scheme by visiting the Government’s website – https://www.gov.uk/government/news/hmrc-invites-hospitality-industry-to-register-for-eat-out-to-help-out

· Customers will not need to provide a voucher, discounts will be made by clubs and reclaimed from Government

· Claims can be made weekly and will be paid into accounts within five working days
