I am aware of a recent case where a client was telephoned by 'HMRC' demanding to know why they hadn't paid the corporation tax - and gave the chastened client the account details so they could pay it straight away. It seems that scammers had gone to Companies House, counted 9 months and a few days from the accounting date and phoned the client - who knew that they had corporation tax that was overdue by a few days and had no reason therefore to think the call was not genuine and so fell for it.

I like the idea that your TV stops working if you don't pay your licence!

Much more important Dave - The play-off dream is still on. Lets hope that (unlike at Leeds and Sheff United) they turn up at Bristol on Saturday.

"Dream"? More like a nightmare. In the unlikely event that they are promoted we will be humiliated, unless someone who owns half of Kuwait decides to buy the club. After 50+ years of supporting them I'm reconciled to the fact that we had a couple of great years under Clough and that is the only glory I will live long enough to see.

Have faith in Frank! If we got Tomori, Wilson and Mount on loan next year, we would have a chance if we could add a few more.

I think you and I might be roughly the same vintage. Bill Curry scored a hat-trick and Reg Matthews was in goal in the first match I saw at the BBG. Bear in mind though that we had a few decent years when we went up under Jim Smith (Wanchope, Poom, Eranio, Stimac etc. - not a bad side). First hurdle - Bristol City then - potentially - old friends Leeds in the play-offs! Or is just wishful thinking?

How much Corporation tax?

As the robber says in Dirty Harry
"Ah needs to know...."

Is it a sad indictment of the current state of HMRC that I half expected this query to be about a new "scam" operated by said government department?
