Tuesday June 11,2013 : BRIT GOVERNMENT CONTINUES V.A.T. STRUGGLE WITH SPORTECH PLC
 
HMRC is now taking the appeal to the Upper Tribunal
 
Sportech plc's multi-million pound sterling V.A.T. tussle with Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs  is not over yet, according to a statement Tuesday from the company.
 
Despite having lost its First-tier Tax Tribunal case and permission to appeal, HMRC has now applied directly to the Upper Tribunal for permission to appeal against the decision of the FTT.  
 
Sportech has been advised that it should expect to hear whether HMRC have been granted the right to appeal in approximately 4 weeks.
