FTT Verdict, Trust payments construed as earnings


An anonymised version of the First Tier Tribunal verdict was published by the Finance and Trbunals service today.  The 145 page document will take some reading but it concluded:

“the trust payments are to be construed as ‘emoluments’ for the purposes of the tax legislation”

For those without a dictionary to hand,… Emoluments: Synonyms earnings, pay, recompense.

I for one am absolutely shocked that Sir David’s confidence was misplaced on this matter.

Enjoy the game!

“having ascertained the real nature of the transaction, you cannot … disguise it by using camouflaged clothing”


‘it is wrong and an unnecessary self-limitation’ not to give regard to ‘the manifested intentions of the parties’ in the face of documents or transactions that are not ‘shams’

Orders are now open for the very first CQN Annual, get it here!

  1. First impressions:



    Red and yellow and pink and green, purple and orange and blue,


    the are all tax dodgers, tax dodgers, and liars too



    Listen with your ears, listen with your eyes, and tell everyone you see,


    they deserve five years in the slammer, reduced on appeal to three .



    Red and yellow and pink and green, purple and orange and blue,


    Strip them of their honours and their knighthoods, take their assets too.

  2. Why is all news outlets reporting the dead club won their tax case but CQN is indicating something different?

    Of course, the irony of it all is that they died for over non payment of debt, and the BTC wasn’t the cause of death.



    None of it really matters as you only live once.

    What’s going on? Seems to be being reported that EBT payments were loans – so does that mean that 100+ people will be chased for repayment??



    And repayment to who? The company who provided loans has been liquidated

  20. TT – I just called using this number but it rings out.

  21. Perfect result, proves there are sevco and rangers, rangers are ‘owed’ money and sevco won’t see a bean.

    Wouldn’t head to the Granby at Shaftsbury Ave if I were you – closed a few months back. Sad to lose it.



    Sheepshaven (Camden) or White Bear (Kennington) would be your best bet to watch it with some company.

  23. Rangers Tax-Case ‏@rangerstaxcase


    Read page 58 – holds that advances to certain players are taxable i.e. these players were no legally paid.

    @CelticResearch Exactly the para I was referring to in page 58. Players were illegally paid = not registered.
