Legal term of the day: uttering

751

Since Corinthians FC gave up the good fight football has largely been a brutish game.  Even those supporters, who are unable to raise a limb with anything approaching athletic guile, often talk a brutish game.  Now, in Scotland, the accountancy geeks are having their day.

The mere mention of the word ‘taxation’ has ears pricking up while the entire corporate accountancy system is now as much of the daily lexicon of football fans as the Laws of the Game.  I reckon the law geeks will have their day soon.

I’d never heard of the crime ‘uttering’ until yesterday, now it’s all I hear from my Edinburgh sources.  Uttering can broadly be defined as using a document you know to be forged.  Don’t worry, it has nothing to do with Our Hero, just an observation for you.

On other matters, still no word from the SFA on the scope of their investigation into Rangers, or the position of their president relating to this matter.  When respected mainstream journalists are making unchallenged assertions about improper registration of players, the SFA cannot choose to ignore these events.  We know they are aware of the allegations, we know the allegations relate to the period when the SFA president was involved with Rangers.  We just don’t know if the SFA are doing anything about them.  A statement confirming that no one is immune from investigation would be a start.

  1. Anyone heard yet of Strathclyde police reporting Rangers to UEFA for the prolific chanting ” up tae ur knees in ….” at Ibrox throughout the Killie game. They were quick off the mark to report Celtic. SFA, Strathclyde Police the list goes on…….

    I’ll have a go.

     

     

    The club disclosing the (EBT payments) as part of the wages would make it contractual and therefore taxable.

     

     

    or

     

     

    The club declaring the use of an EBT would indicate that the player is being paid by a third party (trust) which is against the rules of the game.

  3. Malarkey

     

     

    An EBT is not supposed to be used for the paying of contractual payments such as wages, bonuses etc. An EBT is supposed to issue loans which are then theoretically repayable. Putting income from an EBT down as wages makes it no longer tax free. Hence two contracts.

    I hear what you’re saying and agree entirely. I just thought it would be a last chance for them to witness some blessing – aggressive or otherwise – before they head to the hot place that surely awaits them.

    OK thanks I understand that… but have other clubs used something like an EBT? How did they get round this catch22?

    The Scottish Football Association’s chief executive, Stewart Regan, has warned Rangers that they could face sanctions from the governing body even if their owner, Craig Whyte, sells the club before the independent investigation into his dealings since replacing Sir David Murray last May is concluded.

  9. Re Jim Ballantyne

     

     

    Amazing how this man can show any kind of support for rankers

     

     

    Does he forget that David Murray actually put Airdrieonians oot the game

     

     

    What a cheek.

    That article in the times was sssssooooo…inspirational.

     

     

    Typical kak propoganda aka kidology for ra hun masses to keep a stiff upper “dignified” like lip…

     

     

    This when you know they are running scared. Give them a fairytale & lullaby to lull the hordes back to sleep.

     

     

    Love the military industrial language: in the “trenches” wae Ally…there is something of the Agincourt…the Somme in Goughs words…makes you want to march before breakfast…dust down that picture of the queen up in the attic…mildred get the ladders open the attic…

    “a wretched hive of scum and villainy”.

     

    it is falling apart…their is indeed

    is that cockney rhyming slang?

  12. I know this is a small point-but ill make it anyway-the bbc

     

    is a supposedly neutral body-then why did it take so long to

     

    correct the league table-why is this amateurism acceptable

     

    -the IT dept staff responsible for this should be quizzed re the

     

    delay-sounds like just another one of satans little helpers at it…………..

    ‘OK thanks I understand that… but have other clubs used something like an EBT? How did they get round this catch22?’

     

     

    Maybe they didn’t?

     

     

    Maybe the difference is that they weren’t raided by the City of London police who uncovered all sorts of stuff?

    I think i’ve seen them before…

     

     

    Are they not the ballboys at the begging bowl?

  19. have not looked back sorry if it has been mentioned,reading the herald,the whyte knight has been ordered to pay £ 20,000 in legal expenses over money he owes to roofing cmpany One Stop Roofing.

     

    He (The Whyte Knight) Described the owners of One Stop Roofing firm as opportunists.

     

    Sheriff Ross concluded That the evidence of Mr Whyte as wholly unreliable..

     

    I see a pattern here somewhere.

  20. No point in letting Murderwell win 3 poins on Saturday as they will simply give them back to the huns when they play them next!

     

     

    Crush everyone Celtic – thats being democratic !

  21. Rangers owner Craig Whyte used future income from the club’s match-day catering to pay for new kitchen equipment at Ibrox.

     

     

    The club received new cookers and other catering equipment in a deal with finance house Close Leasing in October 2011.

     

     

    This equipment from the Surrey company made up part of the £1.7m investment to upgrade the kitchens and big screens at Ibrox, promised by Mr Whyte in his purchase agreement when he took over the club last May.

     

     

    According to documents lodged with Companies House, the agreement with Close Leasing sees it receive a proportion of the income Rangers make from their contract with catering firm Azure. It is understood this revenue stream is being used to pay back the debt for the kitchen equipment.

     

     

    The amount Rangers owe Close and the length of the deal is not publicly available. Close Leasing refused to comment, stating that it was a “confidential client matter”.

     

     

    Last year, Azure renewed its contract with Rangers for nine years, and also took over cleaning duties at Ibrox, in a deal worth £35m.

     

     

    The use of the finance tactic by Mr Whyte to pay for part of his pledged investment in Rangers comes after he finally confirmed he had sold future season ticket sales to London firm Ticketus to £24.4m to help fund his takeover.

     

     

    Administrators Duff and Phelps revealed £18m had been taken from the Ticketus deal to pay off the club’s debt to Lloyds Banking Group, while the insolvency firm is currently trying to account for the remaining £6m or so from the season tickets payment.

  22. OK @ernie, honest mistake, owen, et al

     

     

    I think I’ve got it. This is not my area but given that most (???) teams are PLC shouldn’t it be easy for HMRC to look at the player spend of clubs or look at the FA/SFA contracts or the tax they are getting.

     

     

    Then even without the fortunate police raid shouldn’t HMRC be saying to clubs :

     

     

    “hold on a minute…the money in the PLC audited accounts spent on players does not add up with what we are being paid in tax..where is the rest of this money going?”

     

     

    or do the accounts not have to detail the total money spent on players?

  23. i know jim ballantyne well he is an accountant and is big rangers man so no surprise at what hes saying, lets just say he liked to travel abroad with the rest of the knuckle draggers and smash everything in sight fact

  24. The huns are going bust. on

    Has anyone ever ever ever seen the moustachied one and the Kojo one in the same room.

    Sccgers

     

     

    The news I got tonight was not any better

     

     

    Whytes game plan is to liquidate the club

     

     

    New business name, new club name, new everything

     

     

    Rangers FC as we know it now gone

     

     

    What we get is the new Rangers FC 2012

     

     

    Clubs pushing for sanctions, clubs pushing for temoval of our titles and being able to continue our proud history, no European licence and even having to re apply for our status – the tims, backed by Dundee Utd amongst others are going to push for us to be burried

     

     

    What we will have is

     

     

    We will be debt free

     

     

    What Whyte gets is the chance to rid all debts – a chance to savage every outgoing of the club and make them viable

     

     

    He then sells us on at a profit of millions which go’s to his pocket – all for one pound

     

     

    Whyte had put in nothing – one token quid

     

     

    He has taken millions which are unaccounted for

     

     

    He plans to savage our first team squad

     

     

    He has lied to everyone and has cheated since day one

     

     

     

    What happens now is crucial

     

     

    A rescue package is being restructured by P Murray and A Johnstone – they are currently putting together a saviour plan to go to the administrator with a proposal – this is very real

     

     

    Everyone is being contacted possible with money to put together a plan and thankfully people are ready to invest

     

     

    This is our only hope of saving Rangers as we know it

     

     

    Craig Whyte must be removed from our club – I cannot stress how important this is

     

     

    Liquidation is the end game for a man with less shame and bluster than even those before him

     

     

     

    When the time comes be ready to back Mr Paul Murray and company

     

     

    The time is now – CW must be stopped and this is as serious as it will ever get – this is his end game

     

     

     

    As for the title – I only passed on what happened and what I was told – like now

     

    Despite accusations I don’t care what people think if then I’d never been back after passing on the Ellis stuff – everything is honest as it is now

     

     

     

    On Saturday make it known and make yourself proud – get this man out of our club

     

     

    Few years ago I was part of the protests to remove muir-Murray , radio newspapers the works

     

     

    I currently working on a protest plan for Saturday but it is at early stages – We need to be heard – it may be nothing but I feel I have to do something

     

     

    On a side note and something that hit home today – our manager and legend delivered a no surrender speech to our squad yesterday that had him in tears as he tried to keep us somehow together

     

     

    We owe it to ourselves and our fine club to try anything we can

     

     

    This is as serious as it gets – I cant stress it enough

     

     

    Here we stand – we can do no other

  27. The Battered Bunnet on

    Yip,

     

     

    Good ol’ Mark Daly has cancelled his gig at the ol’ Burns Howff tonight, and will instead be appesring live on TV.
