For all those interested Scooter Owners and Riders
I have today recieved the following Email addressed to the Central Coast Scooter Club ---
"I have asked our club as well as my Tax agent about ramifications of someone other than us using the ABN
Our taxation advisor is against anyone using the name other than those that own it for many and various taxaion rules .
IE .for all you know we owe Tax payments on it and you and your club would be libel if you traded under it.
Conversely if you traded under it without our expressed permission you could be libel for taxation fines.
And wev would not allow ypou to use it without our control because you could well give us a taxation bill if you do not handle it (the event) correctly or if you sued
Please choose a different name for your event "
Kind regards Nick
This information is for you to digest and for our Club to consider
As a reasonable person I consider this move by someone or Club to be the idea of a person /club who does not have the interest of scooter riders in mind but is determined in undermining the enjoyment that many of us get from owning and riding scooters and the comradship that develops from events like this.
I shall approach our members as to where we go from here
I leave it to others as to the senselessness of this situation
