    Accountability via Transparency.
    Billy Boyce 8th June 2019 at 12:30

    I don't know whether this is as a result of the court deliberations on Thursday but the megastore at Ibrox was closed yesterday when customers arrived.  It's doors are now reportedly chained and the stock removed.  One fan went there this morning to verify the situation and reported on a TRFC message board:

    "Place is like the Marie Celeste. In total darkness, no staff, no signage, not even a note of explanation on the door apologising to those who have made a wasted journey. Nice of them to communicate so well with those who pay the wages."  


    Has this ever been confirmed? Is there a story or not?

    Would somebody be good enough to remind me what the current state of play is in the court case held/being held, in London I Think, about the replica kit contract? Sorry I may have missed it. Are we just waiting for a decision?

    Celtic’s Questions to Answer
    Easy Jambo @ 16.54

    You may have answered my queries EJ. Still think it would be dangerous for HMRC to concede the grossing up principle?

    Celtic’s Questions to Answer
    Anent the Times article: I refuse to subscribe to read the full article but have a couple of queries if some resident expert can help.

    Why did HMRC drop the penalties? Or did they agree that they were wrongly applied?

    The bit that started (couldn't see the end) with the tax (and presumably NIC) due being levied on the net EBT amount. I assume this means that HMRC calculated the taxes due on the Gross amount that would have had to be paid to produce a net payment of say £100k. This would be likely to be about £170k if I understand correctly and so resulting in a much higher assessment.. If I am correct, and that is likely a big if, surely HMRC would not agree to any reduction in this?

    Any help appreciated before I meet my tribute act drinking pals tomorrow.

    Greed has caused CFC plc to sell its soul without a blush , pretty much as the SFA/SPFL sold the soul of Scottish Football integrity to a miserable wretch.

    JC you have never put it better! I can only add that all clubs are complicit. As we know!! (not a fan of TD's but the reaction to your post on this site is wow just wow)

    I haven’t seen any comment from other teams that play in the same league as Saracens it’s almost like they trust their admins to do the right thing. 


    Exeter are certainly nae happy! And Leicester have called for an investigation in to all clubs finances.

    Just a reminder of where RIFC was at the half year point (31 December 2018).

    Indeed EJ. Even if the audited accounts ( I assume that the interims are unaudited) are half as bad as some on here are suggesting (hoping) there will need to be a masterclass in spin to explain the contrast/movement. Not  sure what the prophets of TRFC/RIFC doom on here base their forecasts on but we will see. For the avoidance of doubt I will be more than happy to see the brown stuff hit the fan (preferably Chris Jack angryangry) ! But I doubt it.
