Agreed Tif, all inter-company transactions would be stripped out on consolidation of the accounts

Still can’t get my head round this.
TRFC played 10 home games in the last 5 months of the season.
If walk up income was say £100k per game(8k fans @ £12 average) then that’s only £1m added to the £9.6m declared income for the first 7months.
Total turnover was just over £19m.
If true then TRFC have achieved something that no football club ever does.They’ve made more in the 2nd 6months than the first seven,even though all the ST income is included in the 1st accounting period.
So.if you take the £9.6m,add £1m for walk ups then you’ve got £10.6m.
Let’s call it £11m.
I know there’ll be a wee bit hospitality,merchandising income etc but £8-9m approx!
I don’t believe it.
If you add this seasons ST cash(I know your not supposed to)that would make a serious dent in that figure,making it more plausible whilst still not balancing out.
Can any of our accountancy types tell me where these extra millions came from?.

Yep, Season Ticket Income is recognised as such on a game by game basis. For example if they had £10m season ticket revenue, and 20 home games, the income is realised at a rate of £500K per game. That accounts for around £5m in the second half of the year.

Saw this post on the Rangers share site, middle para is interesting, i’d have thought season long contracts would be just that, until the end of the season, i.e. after the last game the club plays that season? Am I wrong?

1 team goes up automatically winning the championship – looks like Hearts (4 more wins and its secure). 1 team can go up via playoffs (2/3/4) play each other – then winner of this plays 2nd bottom in SPFL.

So there are 6 extra games to negociate for this extra place. But these games could be after many of our players contracts lapse…. so looks like super gambled that we would win league.

Also being in SPFL next year would help share – but would increase costs – there are rumours of additional payments if we win promotion

Players’ Contracts are like any other Fixed Term Contract, they have an end date.Normal one is 31st May, as the season is over by then, the issue will be caused by the Play-Off Final being moved outwith that date due to Hibs or Falkirk being in the Cup Final.
Players won’t be registered with the club (or indeed insured), after 31st May, however past events have shown that improper registration issues don’t apply to the Establishment Club 👿

I can see your sentiment here, but the Financial LOAN is from SD (IIRC).

The loan of players is from NUFC. Salary payments would either be directly to players now registered to our favorite clumpany, or paid directly to NUFC who would then pay players in turn. On latter, would there by a 90 day wait for invoicing/payment?

At what point does this payment route given Ashely control, or get SD’s money back out sevco?

Other than payment to the onerous 5 as a debt which sevco can’t afford to meet with it’s own funds.

The invoicing route is standard, the players have to remain employees of, and be paid by, the loaning clumpany.
Sevco will have no means of paying these invoices, so they will be notionally ‘paid’ to NUFC by SD, thereby increasing Sevco’s debts to SD, and ensuring their position as major creditor, on terms that will scare off Goldilocks and the 3 Bears

Doom & Gloom ?

So the plan seems to be that The Rangers will slash costs to the bone, dump overpaiid journeymen and live on their gate receipts minus onerous contracts, whilst MA pockets retail, sponsorship and advertising revenues.

If The Rangers get promoted this season and manage to sell 30,000 STs at an average £300, that’s £9mil gross, £7.5mil post VAT. Take away say £3mil in onerous contracts. That leaves a clear £4.5mil plus cup runs.

How much do mid table SPL clubs spend each year in comparison ?

MCFC, I know we can hardly be called ‘mid-table’ this season, but I’m pretty sure that £4.5m is significantly higher that Motherwell’s total turnover, our budget will be £1.5 – £2m at the most
