Bradford Bulls to pay the taxman thousands

Bradford Bulls bosses have agreed to pay thousands of pounds to the taxman, after HM Revenue and Customs officials called for the club to be wound up.

Registrar Nicholas Briggs said he would review the case in two weeks time, November 14, after the club’s lawyer said the money would be paid at a hearing in a Bankruptcy & Companies Court in London.

Tax officials and the club hold a disagreement over how much money is owed. The taxman believes £350,000 is owed, but the club believes the figure to be around £133,000.

Chairman Marc Green said outside court that debts would be cleared.

“I am grateful to my barrister for her ability,” said Green. “It is not a comfortable position to be in.”
