As I said previously on this, Club 1872 are the ones who should be asking questions if Rangers fans have concerns. As a visiting fan, Billy Boyce  is entitled to seek assurance that his safety is guaranteed and has shown that a direct approach elicits a direct answer from his club. Too many other comments appear to be hoping that something’s wrong – albeit fed by King’s grandstanding/idiocy/somewhat dodgy history.

Always a loophole, as illustrated by Gov.uk advice below. My original point is that we (me anyway) don’t know what happened, and apologies if I’ve set us off down an old trail.

6. Insolvent businessesIf the employer is insolvent and the business is being transferred or taken over by another company, the protection employees get is different from in a normal transfer.
The employees are unlikely to be protected under TUPE if the business is closing down. However, TUPE regulations will normally apply if it’s being rescued and taken over or transferred.

SEVCO Scotland incorporated 29-5-12. Duff and Phelps Administrators report that following the failure to achieve a CVA, they sold the business and assets of the club to Newco on 14 June 2012.

Smugas, a question on part of your post – does TUPE apply when a company goes into liquidation? Some people who were employed by RFC 2012 were also employed by SEVCO Scotland/TRFC Ltd but that doesn’t mean that TUPE was applied in the case of those employees. From memory, Charles Green used the term in a bizarre attempt to say that employees of RFC 2012 must transfer employment to SEVCO Scotland Ltd, inferring that any contract they had with RFC 2012 was now with SEVCO Scotland. We know how that ended up. It may just have suited those who were employed by RFC 2012 and had no other offers, to work for SEVCO Scotland.

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.
