@NationalShootingCouncil I am a member, not sure if I can claim your fees on my tax? I know SFFP I can.
If you derive any kind of income from being licensed then yes, its membership of a professional organisation I believe?
SFFP is a donation, not a membership, first of all. Secondly, they have enough money
If your income source includes things like manufacturing press stands, like the one you made for me or custom mold handles, then association to various paid shooting groups is a must for getting in touch and marketing your products to shooters.
If you’re selling your products at MRC shoots, I’d be surprised if entry fees weren’t deductible.
Best to discuss business marketing experiences with an accountant however.
