Cardiff City Granted 28 day HMRC Extension !!!

Cardiff City Granted 28 day HMRC Extension !!!

Cardiff City have scored a victory of sorts after the high court agreed to defer the winding up order against CCFC scheduled for today. After a number of income avenues were opened by the club, most notably involving the sale of land for £1.8m - granted under exceptional circumstances by Cardiff City council.

The HMRC has accepted a down payment of £1m, as a 'good will' payment and the guarantee that monies raised through the sale of land - will be preferentially directed to HMRC.

This really is a stay of execution, and while all information points to the staving off of the wind-up order on this particular occasion, there are significant further debts to be paid - and no sizable income forecast. Gate receipts, the FA Cup match against Chelsea and a 5-figure payment from Birmingham City as part of the Roger Johnson transfer are upcoming.

The winding up order is legally only adjourned for 28 days, pending payment of the outstanding debt. Once further tax payments are due, we could find ourselves in exactly the same boat.

Peter Ridsale surely knows better than to bill this as a 'victory' for CCFC in any sense....surely?!?
