(3)If the company is a qualifying sport body at the time of the payment, a deduction is allowed for the amount of the payment.

See section 217C for the meaning of “qualifying sport body”.

(4)If the company is not a qualifying sport body at the time of the payment, a deduction is allowed—

(5)If at any time on or after 1 April 2017 the company receives income for use for charitable purposes which are purposes for facilitating participation in amateur eligible sport, a deduction is allowed only if, and in so far as, the payment exceeds an amount which is equal to the amount of that income which—
