April 2019 income and expenditure

In April 2019, Clapton CFC spent £28,846.42, with the largest costs (£16,318.17) a long expected payment to HM Revenue and Customs for VAT collected on sales of our replica shirts – we can expect another one of around the same amount in May. Other associated costs were £1215.00 for registering for VAT in Spain and what we hope were final payments for production of shirts (£1,120.43).

We also transferred the funds members voted on in March for the legal action currently underway by Life Members. With five games at home in April (including our first international friendly against UE Sant Miquel), we spent £1,232.00 on printing programmes. Advance tickets and coach hire for our triumphant Jim Rogers Presidents Cup victory cost another £1360.00.

Total income in April 2019 was £11,654.13. For the first time in 2019, match day donations from supporters just beat our sales of merchandise.
