Self-Employment Guidelines

Female Coach Delivering a hockey session

It is important that clubs and associations have the right agreements and processes in place when appointing coaches, managers and administrators.

This will ensure that the roles are genuinely self-employed and protect clubs and associations from investigation by HMRC. 

England Hockey has worked with its professional advisors to put together a number of resources and templates which can be used. They are available in the Useful Documents section of this page, and include:

  • Questionnaires to establish the roles are genuinely self-employed
  • Template contracts for a variety of club and single system roles
  • A Frequently Asked Questions guide to help clubs and Associations.

In addition support can be provided by your Relationship Manager.
