    But we also have significantly more competition for the likes of corporate hospitality and sponsorship in Edinburgh. Aberdeen FC is the only show in town up there.
    This, someone living in the central belt is likely within 1 hours drive of at least 8 Premier League clubs, including the old firm. Someone living in Aberdeen is within 1 hours drive of 1 Premier League club - Aberdeen.

    Question. If I send away the proxy form for someone, do they need to show anything at the door?

    You're too quick to believe Budge's PR.

    Their accounts show a higher commercial income than us.

    Apart from anything else, all their catering (including pie stands) is in-house whereas ours isn't . Their income is higher but so are their outgoings, particularly staff costs.

    We never show a breakdown of turnover though, so how can you compare?

    Good question!!
    I just saw accounts this morning. There was a debate in summer about our wage bill. It's gone up again this year by another 19% bringing total increase to 85% in last 4 years. I remain convinced we're more than competitive with our lowly neighbours on wages paid & are not far behind Aberdeen. The cash flow & p & l numbers re intangible fixed assets (players) are also encouraging & show we've paid out decent money on acquisitions. Future plans & the AGM should be interesting.

    Hearts also have a catering company which caters for outside establishments like Turnhouse GC and Watsonians RFC. This could generate a couple of million but there will be considerable costs associated with it and not sure how much if anything it helps their profit.

    I didnít know that. I book Turnhouse GC once a year for a Xmas family function and have done for more than 10 years now. New venue next Xmas it is then.

    VAT gets brought up a lot on here whilst ignoring any other form of tax issues. Never really understood why.

    I guess it's cause folk have heard of it whilst all the other stuff just goes over our heads.
    Donít get me started on VAT!

    Every time I, or my fellow antipodeans make a purchase from the Hibs shop we needlessly pay 20% more than we need to because of the licencees inadequate software!

    Neither the club, nor the company gain anything, but if VAT appears on an invoice by law they must remit to Hector.

    For purchasers outwith the EEC, VAT on goods purchased is not collectable by HMRC.

    Have queried this unnecessary donation to Boris with the company, but while they have made sympathetic noises, nothing has changed.
