Remember when football was more about the sport rather than the accounts and money? The fact fans and media talk about this in great detail is a sad indictment of where we’re at with football right now.

I used to go to football to escape from the day job

That Maguire fella wants you to give up the accountancy and concentrate on watching football.

 

Would make his life easier.

FFP and VAR seem to get more discussion in football now than anything else. And both are flawed.

 

The game at the top level isn’t what it used to be

Unfortunately, with so much money riding on it these days, it was only ever going to go one way. 

 

Must be a great time to be a sports lawyer.

That is the valuation figure. There is separate disclosure of the historic cost in the note

 

I see - thought you meant the DRC. Wouldn't these historical costs have been depreciated by now?

Just theoretically, the stadium was included at the said valuation you mentioned, but it was a required disclosure back then to include the historic cost and what the depreciation would be if it wasn't valued.

 

Always part of the issue that the value had gone from 22m to 60m in 4 years

Enough poop flying about without me adding to it. But more to the point it was uncalled for. Head wobbled and sometime to be spent on the naughty step.

I’ve been keeping count for ten years now and in total this is just the third time anyone on the entire internet has admitted they could have been wrong about anything.

 

Savour this moment

The DRC method would look to replace Hillsborough's output - i.e. capacity of say 40k at another site, then depreciate.The must be a significant reduction % applied in the value to account for lack of investment at Hillsborough over the last 25 years or so. Save for the new pitch and scoreboard, and possibly the odd refurb behind the South Stand, there's been little or no investment.

 

As you say, to go from £22.25m in 2015 to £60 in 2019 takes some doing. The replacement site land values, and construction costs haven't gone up more that inflation so why the change?

Because £60m was the figure needed to show a profit in regards to ffp?

Aye, that's certainly some rate of depreciation. WTF:

Of course the ground sale is a legal transaction. Groups of companies transfer properties around all the time. I have a client at the moment splitting out properties from his trading business. I could sell my own house to my company - though only if stupid. 

 

The EFL cannot determine the legality of this as a transaction. 

 

They can argue 2 things

 

1) Whether it was a market value transaction - but that is simply to adjust the FFP calcs. The accounts remain the same

 

2) That they do not agree the transaction was in the 31st July 2018 accounts. This is a high bar because as long argued if our auditors have signed off on this, presumably on the back of significant evidence available eg binding legal contracts then how can the EFLs opinion be more right. Basically if you are saying the Club, its lawyers and auditors are wrong, certainly the latter two are going to fight that. I can promise you that would be your professional reputation at stake, huge risk of a regulatory body review of your conduct and the potential of a PI claim to boot if your advice to the Club was wrong. 

 

So there is so much more involved in this. Notwithstanding that HMRC might get interested if there is any corp tax due on the sale. This just seems to be a transaction between connected companies not a group so it's not exempt. The 14 month accounting period this transaction was part of makes that computation a little more interesting just because of how the rules work. 


Quite confusing stuff. In your opinion do you think we will get charged/points deducted by the EFL?

DRC is a valuation technique. Not a chartered surveyor so can't profess to understand it but it was explained to me as follows

 

Step 1 - You calculate the cost in today's terms of re-building the stadium to the same specification - but as new 

 

Step 2 - you then assess the useful life of the stadium

 

Step 3 - you assess how many years into that useful life you are 

 

So the real key number is the hypothetical value of building a stadium with the capacity of Hillsborough in a similar style with similar facilities

 

Anyone got any ideas but I would start the bidding at 120m

Its the implication of course. The problem is, like MK states for the profession of accountancy, property professionals are bound by similar rules/standards.

 

£60m is the actual value, as signed of by the firm who did the valuation. I just can't see what has changed in their assessment of value from the same method/exercise in 2015.

I have no idea - I suppose I have a degree of faith in the professionals behind all this and that if the EFL start arguing the legitimacy of the accounts there are a lot of vested interests beyond the Club itself to challenge that view. 

 

But i can't give an opinion really as there is a lack of the critical evidence in the public domain
