Thanks smugas and John for the additional details. For reasons of time and brevity my response was limited to the narrow question from darkbeforedawn.

HP,
You seem more familiar with the Annan situation than me, but the Club/club is designated as ‘Annan Athletic Community Football Club Limited’ in the Mutuals Public Register, my reading of that is that it has a legal personality. Whether that is actually the entity that has SFA membership and holds one of the 42 SPFL shares, I couldn’t be certain.
I’m sure that the League and SFA have discretion to make things up as required, so they’ll all be bona fide members.

It is ironic (if somewhat surprising) therefore to note that there are least three (possibly four) current shareholders listed in the SPFL which have no legal personality.++++++++++++++++++++++++I meant to ask who are they?

Auldheid, I think that Brechin and Stranraer are unincorporated bodies. Annan is Community Benefit Society and Stenhousemuir a CIC.

I seem to recall that part of Dave King’s settlement with the South African Revenue Service was a  requirement that Mr King’s family repatriate business assets held overseas into South Africa. Has anyone any insight into how this sits with NOAL being BVI-based?

EJ, I’ve no cause to doubt you or Hearts directors or the company auditors. It’s a fact though that people will speculate on these matters, often getting things completely wrong, intentionally or simply through ignorance.

blu December 20, 2017 at 11:16 There is an element of truth in Tangoed’s assertion about the need for transparency though – I’m sure there’s plenty speculation on Jambos Kickback as to the identity of the mysterious benefactors. ===================== There is indeed plenty speculation on Jambos Kickback about the benefactor(s).
A couple of well informed posters have all but confirmed that the money has come from partners in an Edinburgh investment company.

EJ,
I’m sure that you and others closer to the club will have a very good idea who these people are but as long as the club is asked to keep their identities private there will be speculation and aspersions cast from the east of Edinburgh and further afield.

I’ll decline from commenting further, the majority of members here seem to think it is acceptable to conjecture that Hearts are being funded by the proceeds of crime.

For the avoidance of doubt Homunculus, I agree with your challenge to Tangoed – his subsequent response confirms it is simple speculation, possibly mischievous. My question was more focused on what might be considered as money laundering, tangential and less important than your challenge.

Homunculus, I don’t think that money laundering was referred to by Tangoed, no doubt they’ll respond to fully explain.
