The Benefits of Incorporating a Club, Society or Community Group

Written by Peter Lynn
Incorporating a Club, Society or Community Group

If you’re a member of a local club, society or community group, you could be liable for its debts.

Most clubs and societies are set up as unincorporated associations meaning there is group and individual unlimited liability for debts, claims, fines and losses for every member of the club.

This includes:
► Sports Clubs
► Youth or Social Clubs
► Societies, Groups or Social Organisations

The actions and decisions of the organisers (e.g. the Committee) can have an impact on all members and if the club is in financial trouble, all members are potentially liable.

What can be done to help?
At Peter Lynn and Partners Solicitors, we have specialist lawyers who can advise on limiting those liabilities to negligible levels thereby protecting the committee and every single member.

What do I do next?
If you are involved in running a club or organisation that is unincorporated, get expert advice now on how to turn your club into a limited company.

Initial advice is FREE and total incorporation can cost as little as £500 depending on the complexity of the organisation or constitution.

In addition, many clubs and societies may be able to claim a contribution to their legal fees from their governing body e.g. WRU
