Wirral RA have added a new page to the site to offer advice to officials regarding possible tax implications from refereeing.
Click here to have a read. It is worth bearing in mind that those at Level 5 and below would not normally generate a tax demand but members are reminded to keep a log of their games.
A spreadsheet logbook is available here.
Referees Association December News Digest is available now by using the following link.
To provide the members of RA with a scheme which provides them with (immediate) access to physiotherapy and rehabilitation if they suffer a musculoskeletal disorder (MSD), which prevents them from being able to perform their duties as a referee.
The incident/Injury which results in the MSD must be incurred whilst the member is travelling directly to and from a game, during a game, training or whilst on recognised referee's society business.
To qualify for the service the MSD must prevent the member from being able to perform their duties as a referee for at least five consecutive days.
An injury website will be available during the intervening period, so that the initial care which should be administered by the patient immediately following the injury can be treated, e.g. Icing elevation etc
An IPRS Personal Care Advisor will contact the member by phone within 2 working days, to carry out a triage call to assess the extent of the member’s injuries and whether IPRS intervention is appropriate.
Details of procedures to be used by officials will follow shortly.
If IPRS intervention is appropriate, IPRS will arrange a physical assessment and up to a maximum of four treatment sessions, as clinically appropriate.
Each member can claim for up to 4 separate, non-related MSD’s during the annual Agreement Period.
All treatment will be arranged by IPRS only, and referred into their network of Associate Practices.
Treatment will not be provided for an MSD:
i) which did not specifically occur within the Agreement Period,
ii) where, in the opinion of IPRS, it is neither reasonable nor appropriate to do so,
iii) which occurred within 7 days of the commencement of the Agreement. This does not apply for renewal Agreements,
iv) for which the Official has previously received treatment under this Agreement.
Details of claiming website and telephone numbers will be available shortly.
