first_img– to pay .5B in settlementDemerara Distillers Limited (DDL) has announced that an amicable settlement has been reached with the Guyana Revenue Authority (GRA) to resolve a long standing dispute over Consumption Tax that began in 2002.This settlement follows an extended legal battle between DDL and the GRA arising out of the Consumption Tax assessment levied against DDL by then Commissioner General Khurshid Sattaur in January, 2009, in the sum of $5,392,020,753 (five billion, three hundred and ninety-two million, twenty thousand, seven hundred and fifty-three dollars). This assessment was challenged in the High Court by DDL.DDL and the GRA were able to recommence negotiations for a resolution of the methodology for a calculation of Consumption Tax (and its successor, Excise Tax), and have now been able to arrive at consensus to fully and finally settle all claims by the GRA and liability by DDL for both Consumption and Excise tax up to March 9, 2016 in the sum of $1,500,000,000 (one billion, five hundred million dollars). This sum is payable over 12 months. DDL, in good faith, very recently effected payment of $100,000,000 (one hundred million) in compliance with the settlement terms.In 2002, DDL had raised a legal challenge against the GRA on the methodology adopted by the latter for the assessment of Consumption Tax.In February 2005, the High Court found in favour of DDL. The GRA subsequently appealed that decision and on July 31, 2008, the Guyana Court of Appeal unanimously dismissed the GRA’s Appeal.Following the dismissal of the appeal, the GRA commenced a new assessment in August 2008 and, notwithstanding attempts by the parties at resolving the matter on January 16, 2009, the GRA issued a new claim in the crippling amount of G$5.392 billion. On DDL’s application in 2009, the High Court issued an Order Nisi pending the hearing of the matter.DDL Chairman Komal Samaroo said “DDL was always committed to a resolution of the matter with the GRA despite the many failed attempts at settlement.” The Chairman added that “DDL was pleased with the enlightened approach adopted by the GRA in December 2015 which recently culminated in the settlement of the matter between the parties.”last_img read more

first_img0Shares0000After a 1-0 win over Manchester United at Wembley, Chelsea captain Gary Cahill lifts the FA Cup trophy that has ‘saved’ Chelsea’s otherwise troubled season© AFP Ian KINGTONLONDON, United Kingdom, May 19 – Chelsea beat Manchester United 1-0 to lift the FA Cup thanks to Eden Hazard’s penalty at Wembley on Saturday to salvage a disappointing season.In what is still widely expected to be Chelsea manager Antonio Conte’s final game in charge, the Blues withstood a second-half onslaught from United after Hazard’s 22nd-minute spot-kick to ensure Jose Mourinho’s men end the season trophyless. On a day where the world’s eyes were on a royal wedding 18 miles west in Windsor, Chelsea reigned on the field to salvage a campaign in which they failed to even qualify for the Champions League after finishing fifth in the Premier League.And should it prove to be Conte’s last game in charge, the Italian’s bowed out on a high as his decision to start first-choice goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois for the first time in the FA Cup this season over Willy Caballero was justified by a series of saves from the Belgian to keep United at bay after the break.United were without top-scorer Romelu Lukaku from the start as the Belgian was only fit enough for a place on the bench against his former club due to an ankle injury.Garden of Eden: Chelsea’s Hazard opened the scoring at Wembley© AFP Glyn KIRKLukaku’s presence was missed as Chelsea settled quickest with Hazard particularly lively in the space between the United defence and midfield.The diminutive Belgian threatened first when he burst past Phil Jones only to see a fiercely-struck low effort parried by the legs of David de Gea.Hazard’s next break proved decisive as he took advantage of more indecision by Jones to race clear on goal before being chopped down by the England defender as he prepared to shoot.Chelsea players and Conte argued for a red card rather than yellow, but Jones’s attempt to play the ball saved him from a dismissal.Hazard dusted himself down to coolly send De Gea the wrong way from the spot for his 18th goal of the season.– Lack of invention –The second half was a big improvement on the first as the game began to open up with De Gea and Courtois making brilliant saves to keep the score at 1-0.United had come from a goal behind to win against Tottenham Hotspur in the semi-finals and the last time they met Chelsea at Old Trafford in February.However, the lack of invention that Mourinho’s side have been routinely criticised for throughout the campaign showed in their efforts to get back on terms.Jones had United’s best chance of the first half but headed wide at the back post as he tried to make amends for his earlier error.Marcus Rashford also failed to make the most of a rare start as a central striker in Lukaku’s absence.The England international was unable make a clean contact when teed up by a purposeful Paul Pogba run in the last action of the first 45 minutes.Courtois wasn’t called into action until just before the hour mark when Rashford stung his palms as United dominated the second half.The Chelsea ‘keeper then made a brilliant stop low to his left to parry an acrobatic Pogba effort and Alexis Sanchez was denied a ninth goal in as many appearances at Wembley when he was flagged offside after firing the rebound into the roof of the net.At the other end, De Gea kept United alive by saving from Marcos Alonso and Ashley Young was lucky to avoid conceding a second penalty when Alonso’s cross came off his arm.Rashford’s biggest and last chance to make himself a hero came 20 minutes from time when Courtois rushed from his goal to make a brilliant save from the forward’s attempted chip.Mourinho reacted by hooking Rashford and Jesse Lingard for Lukaku and Anthony Martial.But it was Pogba who had the biggest chance to level when the £89 million midfielder headed wide from a corner eight minutes from time.0Shares0000(Visited 2 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

first_img The colt owned by George Steinbrenner can begin to make that a reality with a successful comeback in Saturday’s $1 million Travers Stakes at Saratoga, the season’s last battle royal for 3-year-olds. “The ideal (on the) wish list would be that he runs the same way he ran in the Wood Memorial,” Hall of Fame trainer Nick Zito said on the day Bellamy Road (Javier Castellano riding) drew post position 1 and was selected the 2-1 favorite for the 136th Travers. Funny things have happened to horse racing’s heavyweights since the May evening Bellamy Road walked into the Kentucky Derby starting gate as a budding superstar, only to finish seventh behind 50-1 winner Giacomo and exit injured. Weirder yet is the possibility that, after so many other horses have been tripped up, Bellamy Road will find himself the center of attention again at the $4 million Breeders’ Cup Classic at Belmont Park on Oct. 29. Roman Ruler comes into the Travers off victories in Belmont’s Dwyer Stakes and Monmouth’s Haskell Invitational. Flower Alley was second in the Dwyer before beating Reverberate by 5 lengths in Saratoga’s Jim Dandy. Then there are all of the star 3-year-olds who aren’t in the Travers: Giacomo won’t race again until at least the Dec. 26 Malibu Stakes at Santa Anita after having bone-chip surgery in June. Afleet Alex, the Preakness and Belmont winner, now seems unlikely to come back from a July fracture in time to race in the Breeders’ Cup Classic. Closing Argument, the Derby runner-up at 71-1, hasn’t competed since finishing ninth in the Preakness and is shooting for races later in the summer. The injury bug has gobbled up older stars as well: Ghostzapper, the Horse of the Year in 2004, has been retired after one start in 2005. Roses in May, who chased Ghostzapper in the 2004 Breeders’ Cup Classic, was retired earlier this month. Eddington, the Pimlico Special winner, also has gone to stud. All of which should have allowed Donn Handicap and Stephen Foster Handicap winner Saint Liam to pad his lead in the 3-year-olds-and-up division, but his reputation was dented when front-running Commentator upset him in Saratoga’s Whitney Handicap. In California, meanwhile, Hollywood Gold Cup winner Lava Man and Swaps Stakes winner Surf Cat lost their Breeders’ Cup momentum when they waged an early duel and finished third and sixth behind 12-1 Borrego in last Sunday’s Pacific Classic at Del Mar. Suddenly, in the World Thoroughbred Poll rankings of Breeders’ Cup Classic contenders, Rock Hard Ten has moved all the way up to No. 2 (below Saint Liam) while not racing since his Santa Anita Handicap win in March because of physical problems. The search for Breeders’ Cup threats seems to have brought us full circle to the stars of the spring. Weird, but it suits Bellamy Road just fine. At Del Mar: The Del Mar season, which peaked when a track-record $24,048,615 bet on the Pacific Classic program Sunday, begins to wind down this weekend. Saturday’s $250,000 Del Mar Debutante, the sixth and last Grade I stakes at the meet that ends Sept. 7, matches Sorrento winner Bully Bones (Rene Douglas), Landaluce winner Indian Breeze (Pat Valenzuela) and Cinderella winner River’s Prayer (Victor Espinoza) in a field of 11.

Caution is advised especially because Zito and the Steinbrenner camp didn’t decide until Tuesday whether Bellamy Road would return to competition in the 1-mile Travers, not the seven-furlong King’s Bishop Stakes on the same Saturday card. “I have to ask Bellamy Road to do me a favor,” Zito said. “It is a big, big, step, there’s no question. Obviously, I’m putting him through something that is not an easy thing to do. He is an exceptional horse, so we’re just going to do the best we can.” The Travers, as big a race as it is, shapes up as just a step for the Florida-bred son of Concerto who likely would have one more race between this and the Breeders’ Cup Classic to tap his apparently awesome potential. The post-position lineup for the Travers (ESPN, 2 p.m.): Bellamy Road; Andromeda’s Hero (Corey Nakatani), 12-1; Chekhov (Gary Stevens), 10-1; Roman Ruler (Jerry Bailey), 5-2; Don’t Get Mad (Edgar Prado), 10-1; Reverberate (Jose Santos), 8-1; and Flower Alley (John Velazquez), 3-1. last_img read more

first_imgSinn Féin Finance spokesperson Pearse Doherty TD has said the Summer Economic Statement, published this afternoon, shows that there is no scope in this year’s budget for net tax cuts.Deputy Doherty said the focus must be on alleviating the crises in health and housing.Speaking today he said; “Sinn Fein has consistently said that investment in public services must take priority over tax cuts that will have absolutely no benefit to the vast majority of people on low to average incomes. “Today’s Summer Economic Statement, showing just €350 million of fiscal space, confirms to us that there is no scope whatsoever for net tax cuts in the upcoming budget.“Instead the full €350 million should be invested in public services with a particular focus on alleviating the crises in health and housing.”On the government’s plan to invest €500 million a year into a rainy day fund from 2019 on Teachta Doherty said;“If you are raising your family in a hotel it is raining today. If you or a loved one are waiting in pain for a medical procedure it is raining today. “It is beyond belief that the government would put this kind of money aside when we have such serious crises in our public services.“And it shows that this government, nor one led by Fianna Fáil, who have suggested that €1billion should be put aside per year in this fund, can be trusted to fix these crises and deliver quality public services for all our people.”Doherty: No space for net tax cuts in Budget 2018 was last modified: July 12th, 2017 by Elaine McCalligShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:budget 2018net tax cutsPearse Dohertysummer economic statementlast_img read more

first_imgGardai are investigating a bizarre incident during which two teenagers knocked on a house and threatened the owners with robbery and violence.The frightening ordeal happened on Saturday night last at a house at Ture in Muff on the Inishowen Peninsula.Two teenagers, aged between 16 and 17, knocked on the door of the house around 7pm and then forced their way into the home. Once inside the youths threw a laptop across the sitting room of the house and then threatened the people inside with violence.One of the young men was not wearing any clothing on the upper part of his body.The owner of the house managed to overpower the two youths before throwing them out of the house.Nobody was physically hurt during the ordeal but those in the house were left very shaken by the ordeal. It is understood the two young men were spotted earlier in the evening in Buncrana.Garda Sgt Charlene Anderson said the incident was very frightening for all concerned.“This was a horrendous ordeal for the people in this house to have their personal belongings thrown across the room and then threatened with violence.“We would appeal to anybody who knows about this crime to come forward and to help us with our enquiries,” she said.Shirtless man smashed up house and threatened owners during burglary was last modified: October 10th, 2019 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more
