StockMarketWire.com - Sportech (SPO) said Her Majesty's Revenue & Customs (HMRC) paid Sportech £93 million in relation to the VAT repayment claim on the 'Spot the Ball' game. The balance of approximately £4 million will be paid to Sportech in the event of a successful final determination. Sportech is awaiting a decision from the Supreme Court as to whether HMRC has been granted the right to appeal to the Supreme Court against the Court of Appeal's unanimous decision in favour of Sportech. If HMRC is granted the right to appeal (expected by Autumn 2016), and in the event that the Supreme Court overturns this unanimous decision, and issues judgment in favour of HMRC (potentially late 2017/early 2018), these monies together with any related interest would need to be repaid.
