Indemnity Form re tax liabilities
The previous form has now been withdrawn. HQ are recommending that clubs include the following sentence on any letter or form booking a speaker/demonstrator
"The presenter is responsible for all Tax and National Insurance payments incurred as a result of this booking"
This removes the need to get the demonstrator/speaker/teacher/judge to sign anything.

There is a slight chance that HMRC could come onto clubs for unpaid income tax liabilities on the fee portion of presenters Blue Form expenses. Any presenter who is receiving substantial financial reward should be filling in a tax return. In order to cover their backs clubs should now attached this form, as sent from H.Q to the blue form. This should be filled in by the presenter and returned to the club or area making the booking with part B. To obtain the form click link
