Background to SCP

The Sports Capital Programme (SCP) is operated by the Department of Transport, Tourism and Sport and provides grants to assist in the development of sports facilities and the provision of sports equipment throughout the country.

OSCAR

The Sports Capital Programme is now online in a system called OSCAR (Online Sports Capital Register). OSCAR will allow groups to view previous grants and payments, change contact details, seek payment of a grant and otherwise communicate with the Department online.

This will also be the only way to apply for grants under any future rounds of the Sports Capital Programme. Any organisation that wishes to make any future applications must first register online. Register early to ensure that you can apply under future rounds of the SCP.

You Need a Tax Registration Number to Register

A Tax Registration Number (TRN) is required for all organisations wishing to register on OSCAR. The TRN is the unique identifier and user name for logging into the system.

You need written confirmation of the TRN from the Revenue Commissioner prior to completing the registration process either in the form of a tax clearance certificate or a letter from Revenue confirming your TRN. It is not permitted to use the TRN of your national governing body, regional grouping or of a different organisation. If your organisation already has a tax clearance certificate, the TRN is in the top left hand corner of the certificate.

If your organisation is not a limited company and does not currently have a TRN, getting one is simple. You complete the 1 page form 'Registration Form for voluntary non-profit making organisations' and return to your local Revenue Office. It should take around 10 working days to get written confirmation of your TRN.

If your organisation is a limited company, the form to be completed is Form TR2. In this case, you should ensure that your company is registered with the Companies Registration Office prior to application for a TRN.

Further information including the contact details for your local Revenue Office is available from Revenue and from the Companies Registration Office.
