30.8 million at stake

The Rank Group Plc (Rank) has applied for leave to appeal to the Supreme Court following a ruling handed down by the Court of Appeal in favour of HM Revenue & Customs.

The case concerns a claim for overpaid VAT between 2002 and 2005 (see previous report).

Rank was awarded the HMRC refund amounting to 30.8 million following successful rulings from the First-Tier Tribunal tax chamber and the High Court back in 2010 but cautioned at the time that the HMRC had appealed the rulings.

Gala Coral would have been watching the proceeds with interest as it was also the recipient of an HMRC repayment of 44.1 million of VAT and 7.4 million of associated interest in relation to claims for overpaid VAT on certain types of amusement machines between 2002 and 2005.

The company said it "notes" the Rank Group ruling along with its filing for leave to appeal.
