You don’t need to register an unincorporated association, and it doesn’t cost anything to set one up.
Individual members are personally responsible for any debts and contractual obligations.
If you make a profit (and we do intend to)
If the association does start trading and makes a profit, you’ll need to pay Corporation Tax and file a Company Tax Return in the same way as a limited company.
For this purpose we are registered as HMS (Her Majesty's Services)
Royal Malaysian Travel Service and Great British Railways. We
anticipate profitability when we have a democratically elected
government in The United Kingdom that puts people first and
our enterprise will then be administered as a public utility
providing sustainable transport services for everyone.
