The Telegraph reports that the investigation into the tax affairs of professional football clubs by HMRC is scrutinising the basic salaries paid to academy scholars to decide whether they meet minimum wage regulations.
HMRC is understood to be investigating whether the number of hours a week that scholars spend training and playing games equates pro rata to the government minimum wage, set at £3.50 an hour for an apprentice.
Clearly football is flavour of the month at HMRC.
I assume HMRC "away days" to football clubs/games etc are now off the menu?
Tax does have to be taxing.
