I have just submitted the following supplementary questions to the press office of the Scottish Football Association.
Can you confirm that in 2009 your organisation received “Third Party Notice under Schedule 36 of 2008 Finance Act” empowering HMRC investigators?
Can you also confirm that said legal mechanism was apropos Rangers Football Club?
Was this court ordered inquiry relating to the copies of contracts that you had received from Rangers FC and related correspondence?
Was the Chief Executive of the SFA in 2009, Mr Gordon Smith, informed of this legally enforceable request for this paperwork?
Was he aware that this was regarding a tax probe by HMRC inspectors into Rangers FC?
As per the previous questions, I will publish any response that is forthcoming from the SFA.
