From looking online it appears that PWC were paid over £16million in fees for providing audit services and advice to the group...£6.5 million fine sounds like a result!!
vat registration delay
We submitted an online application for Group vat registration for a client on the 5th June and have had nothing back as yet. On my third call I was put through to the registration unit who traced the application but could give me no details of the progress and we were told to call back in a weeks time if we dont hear anything....at present we have no idea when the vat number will come through.
I would suggest this only highlights how unfair the olympic ticketing process was when you have a person applying for £36,000 worth of tickets when he clearly would not be able to attend all of the events himself and most likely not able to afford them going by the fact he had to get a bank loan for the £11,000 actually and will be giving them away to people who dont necessary want them while there are people who took the time and effort to apply for tickets and have been unsuccessful.
Not really in the spirit of the olympic games if you ask me!!!
