The club treats everyone equally.’AdvertisementAdvertisementEarlier this week one of Carrasco’s teammates accused the former Atletico Madrid winger of deliberately incurring a suspension to avoid having to play for his club.Speaking on Chinese social media platform Weibo, Yu Ziqian said: ‘You’re a star and you play well, but you can’t win a game by yourself.‘When we played Shanghai Greenland Shenhua you deliberately got a fourth yellow card (in the season) and got a suspension to avoid playing Shanghai SIPG; and then you went back to Europe ahead of schedule.‘When we played Hebei China Fortune you told the club your plane was late. If you came back one day earlier, how could you be late?‘Now you are back, but you don’t even move in training. When we play training matches you just you just stand around the pitch, you do not attack and do not defend.‘The atmosphere of team training has been ruined. As a professional football player, training and games are as important as life.‘No matter how important a person is, he cannot override the team. I really hope we can say a nice goodbye to you just like we welcomed you at the beginning!’Unai Emery is keen to bring Carrasco to north London, while the player is desperate to return to Europe in order to boost his chances of making Belgium’s Euro 2020 squad.Arsenal, who failed in their attempts to sign Carrasco in January, are, however, struggling to agree a fee with Dalian who are yet to decide whether or not to cash in on their prize asset.More: Arsenal FCArsenal flop Denis Suarez delivers verdict on Thomas Partey and Lucas Torreira movesThomas Partey debut?

Bridport & West Dorset Golf Club, VAT Liability of Green Fees – KPMG Update

first_img The following release has been issued by KPMG to its clients and IS NOT on behalf of England Golf. Bridport & West Dorset Golf Club Appeal VAT Liability of Green Fees – Update Progress in the claims process HMRC have now asked the Tax Tribunal to put all claims on hold until July so that they can decide whether to argue unjust enrichment. We are discussing this with HMRC and voicing our concern at the length of delay and will keep you informed. We will contact you again shortly to ask for additional information in order to bring your claim up to date.   Unjust enrichment HMRC would need to show that your pricing structure passed the economic burden of the VAT on to customers. In our experience fees are set by reference to the local market, and VAT has been paid out of that amount. We understand that clubs continue to charge the same price, but based on the decision in Bridport can now retain the full amount instead of paying a proportion to HMRC. This supports our view that fees are generally set by reference to the market regardless of the VAT liability, making the unjust enrichment argument difficult for HMRC to pursue. Ongoing charges Given HMRC’s delay in the publication of the Business Brief, we recommend that you rely on the Bridport decision being applicable to your golf club and treat any green fees received as exempt with effect from the start of the current VAT return period. This is on the basis that the decision in Bridport has confirmed that the relevant part of the UK VAT legislation is defective. You should remove any references to VAT from any documents or information relating to green fees. We are informing HMRC that we have given this advice. Interest on your claims Interest will be payable on top of your claim. There is ongoing litigation about whether that interest should be compounded. Simple interest will be paid as a matter of course, however you will need to consider taking additional action to protect your potential compound interest claim. We will shortly send you an update setting out the options and an analysis of the potential benefit. 6 May 2014 Bridport & West Dorset Golf Club, VAT Liability of Green Fees – KPMG Update last_img read more
