Newsletter – Saturday 24th and Sunday 25th August 2019 – Week 1

Welcome back! We hope that everyone had a restful summer break (winter for our southern hemisphere members), and are all ready to go for our third, and longest, term of rugby and touch! We have a lot to fit in this term – the SCC Rugby Academy tournament, TRC tournament, Clifford Chance Touch tournament and the Centaurs International Mini & Youth Rugby Tournament for starters.

HAVE YOU LEFT?

If you have left Singapore, or your child is just taking a break from the Academy this term, please don’t forget to drop a note to Sarah at info@sccrugbyacademy.com so we can update TeamSnap and the team lists.

TRAINING FEES DUE FOR 3rd TERM 2019

Training fees for Term 3 are now due. To check how much you owe for your child, use TeamSnap and select their name under their team under My Teams on your dashboard page, and then select the Payments tab to see their listing and training fees due. The diagrams below will help you.

PAYPAL

If you use the web version of TeamSnap, you will find a PayPal link on the Payments tab to make payment easier for you. Please note that the PayPal link can only be found in the web version of TeamSnap, and does not show on the mobile app version.

Alternatively, you can pay by bank transfer. Bank details are included below.

Please note that on your TeamSnap “home page”, it will show that you have “No Invoices Due” – this refers to the registration fee you paid when your child first joined the Academy. You need to select your child’s name under their team (under My Teams), and then the Payments tab, to find this term’s Training Fees.

LATE PAYMENT CHARGES

15% charge will be added to all unpaid fees after the 4th week of term – for this term, the late fee will come into effect on Friday 20th September 2019. Please be aware that as this term is a longer term, training fees are higher and the late fee charge for non SCC members in the U6 up will be $54.

THE FRY GROUP TAX WORKSHOP: INHERITANCE TAX AND SUCCESSION PLANNING

There are countless reasons why it can be tempting not to think about inheritance tax and to consider it a problem for another day. Living far from the UK and hopefully being in good health, can mean that we are more focused on growing our wealth, rather than planning to protect it on death.

Over the last 10 years, we have seen property prices rise and nil rate bands stay static. This had led to larger portions of individuals estates exposed to inheritance tax. In this workshop we will review options available to reduce overall IHT exposure.

Our speaker Anna Warren, Head of Tax Asia will discuss ways to identify inheritance tax exposure and will touch on some sensitive, workable solutions to protect estates.

Date: Wednesday, 25 September 2019

Time: 8.00am-9.00am,1.00pm-2.00pm and 6.30pm – 7.30pm Sessions Available

Location: The Fry Group, 6 Battery Road #16-04/05, Singapore 049909

Speakers: Stephanie Chan, Tax Manager, Hong Kong, and Anna Warren, Head of Tax, Asia

RSVP:

8.00am-9.00am Breakfast

1.00pm-2.00pm Lunch

6.30pm-7.30pm Evening

Light refreshments will be served and there will be plenty of opportunity for Q&A.

Places are limited and registrations will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis.
