Neil Atkinson to FINANCE
As many of us do not carry cash when at the club, I feel that the clubhouse staff are missing out greatly on tips. Is there any way that the till could be modified so that a tip could be added to our bill, and that cash taken out of the till and into the tip pot? I understand that there may be accounting issues with this, but I just thought there may be some possibility, in a similar way that restaurants and pubs do it on a credit or debit card bill.
This has been discussed and I like you have sympathies with catering and Bar staff. I will bring up again with Chair of House and the new Treasurer.
From memory I think the major issue is the club have no option but to declare these tips as earnings which of course brings on income tax liability in some cases … Will discuss again
