An ‘unincorporated association’ is an organisation set up through an agreement between a group of people who come together for a reason other than to make a profit, e.g. a sports club.      The term is also used to describe the organisation as not being a 'corporate body', i.e. the organisation is not a limited company. The vast majority of sports club are unincorporated associations.      You don't need to register an unincorporated association with anyone and its rules and regulations are typically detailed in a constitution.

A number of clubs were penalised by the tax authorities last year for paying volunteers so called expenses because they were deemed to be a payment for services, i.e. the volunteer was in fact a worker. This will happen if you pay volunteers for more than their actual out-of-pocket expenses and it is something HMRC will scrutinise if they decide to inspect your club or coaching business.
