Will they be able to apply the new rules retrospectively, to cover tax avoided via EBT schemes prior to these rules being put in place.
Homounculus…normally, retrospective tax is seen as anathema to HMRC’s concept of “fair play” in matters of such controversy…however, methinks that certain actions within the tax mitigation industry (and their illustrious benighted clients)  have irritated HMRC to the extent that they will now be able to say…”it’s ma baw…here are ma rules…if ye dinnae like it….”

If BDO lose the appeal in the Supreme Court then they’ll be chased by the tax man, yet if the appeal is successful Hector will still be after them if this law comes to pass. I hope Hector is keeping a close eye on any money being transferred abroad from the recipients. =================================
JustShattered…I see the future…and it is… looking good…assuming the appeals go in our (i.e. taxpayers’) favour 04
On the positive side, I firmly believe that it is now to late for those recalcitrants who have not already made “overseas sheltering” arrangements…shame! 03

StevieBCDecember 22, 2017 at 18:29Guess that the CoS result could /should trigger a couple of events in the short-term;– King resigns from RIFC & – the auditors Campbell Dallas ‘do walking away’ ?You would think…?  +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++Their reputation is on the line. I would think ICAS practice regulation are keeping a close watch on this one._______________________________________________________
ICAS Practice Regulation only get upset when recalcitrant, (no, not “concomitant”) members, like me, fail to return meaningless checklists or forms in time.
Please believe me…I have “got form” in this area…. 01
Only when a serious complaint from “members of the public” is received, would any notice be taken…and minimum action result…
Please remember, that ICAS members, at least 20 in number, have been involved in this whole RFC/MIH/TRFC/TRIFC omnishambles over the last 20 years or so….and….yup…a big fat zilch from the “public”…
I rest my case….

Good morning JC(e)…I was wondering when you would resurrect my old “bete-noire” Shakingspeare…19
Delighted to see that you are all the others are still banging away at the shame that masquerades as governance in Scottish football…

….”My initial thought was that the ‘interims’ were back of a fag packet stuff: start with a minimal ‘profit figure’…then work backwards and plug in the difference into ‘Revenue’….” Shhhhh….now everyone knows how we beancounters work…”There was speculation that it was cobbled together by King, with the assistance of a ‘young staff member’….”…possibly another newly/recently qualified CA…searching for his career path to glory (not!)…090909

THAT Debate, and the Beauty of Hindsight
Saddened to see yet another fellow CA, instrumental in the whole MIH/RFC tax planning, aka tax avoidance/evasion/EBT scenario, squirming in court under cross examination. Just how many CAs have been involved in helping David Murray carry out his destruction of Scottish Football and his own publicly quoted business, but still leaving him a millionaire, relatively unscathed by his own misdeeds, for which he was ennobled? 1111

THAT Debate, and the Beauty of Hindsight
Good morning all…haven’t posted a comment for a few months…has anything happened.?..especially in the RIFC omnishambles 151515…?
