Podcast 3: How to Work Best Within the Budgets You Have: understand how you can prepare and review budgets with confidence and work within your club’s or league’s means.
Podcast 4: Understanding Different Taxes: an overview of the different taxes and where to find further information on them.
The podcasts follow-on from a series of regular webinars which were co-presented by experts and volunteers from clubs who shared their stories and experiences about various development topics, followed by an open discussion towards the end of each session. Previous editions of these can be viewed on the Essex County FA’s YouTube channel.
