Scottish Premier League Side Heart Of Midlothian Pays Majority Of Tax Bill
Published June 12, 2013
Scottish Premier League side Heart of Midlothian "has paid the majority" of the £100,000 ($156,000) it owes U.K. tax authority HMRC in unpaid PAYE, according to the BBC. The club expects to "pay the remainder in the near future." The Tynecastle outfit had until 5pm BST on Tuesday to settle the bill "to avoid being issued with a winding-up order." Hearts paid HMRC £450,000 ($701,000) in December, and negotiated a repayment plan for a separate £1.5M ($2.3M) tax bill, "the first instalment of which has been met" (BBC, 6/11).
