Table money increasing due to VAT registration

Table money increasing due to VAT registration 

When a business’s turnover exceeds £85,000, they need to register for VAT. This threshold has been frozen since 2017; meaning that many small businesses have had to register for VAT.

Due to the gradual increase in members playing bridge at our club, our income is now over £85,000. This means we need to register for VAT from 1st March 2024. Our success is good news for the VAT man who will start to get 20% of our income. As a result we need to increase table monies by 20% from 1st March:

- Duplicate sessions £4.00 to £4.80

- Assisted play £5.00 to £6.00 

Tea, coffee and biscuits will remain complementary.

Free bridge for a week from 26th February

We need a week to reconfigure our card terminal. As a result, bridge will be free for the week: Monday 26th February to Saturday 2nd March.

Teaching classes are not included - so those of you turning up to teaching classes on an ad hoc basis will still need to pay.

Speeding around Holtom Street

Speed limit is 20mph

We have received more complaints from neighbours about cars speeding in the streets around the bridge club. The recent complaint is related to people leaving the Thursday afternoon (18th January) teams’ session. Several cars were clocked speeding down Holtom Street.

Speeding around the bridge club, upsetting our neighbours, is not acceptable. I have registration numbers of a few speeding cars. I will be having a quiet word with the relevant people.

Speeding seems to be a recurrent problem. Our ultimate sanction would be to revoke membership and impose a permanent ban from playing at our bridge club.
