DHL, Lone Star Contest BOTA Rulings

first_imgSeveral rulings by the Board of Tax Appeals (BOTA) have been seriously challenged at the Tax Court by a number of taxpayers.BOTA was established in 2009 to provide taxpayers and taxing authorities (Ministry of Finance) with an accessible, fair and efficient appeal process and to resolve appeals in a timely and judicious manner.But some of the taxpayers such as DHL Limited and Lone Star Communications Corporation (LSCC) have already filed a motion for “Judicial Review of Tax Determination” against BOTA.In DHL’s case, they alleged that the Ministry of Finance (MOF) audited the institution covering the period 2007, 2008, 2009 tax bills in the amount of US$328,678.98.In that audit, DHL’s operating expense totaling US$473, 474. 86 was not acceptable as a valid deduction for lack of supporting documents.MOF disallowed it and added the expenses of the deductible to the revenue of DHL for each of the period audited.DHL then requested the Ministry to provide particulars of the transaction for the tax period audited that it deemed unacceptable deduction expenses.The company even asked the Ministry to provide a list of specific transactions to allow for the offering of supporting documents in order to substantiate whether the Ministry’s claims truly exist.That request was rejected by the MOF.It was this rejection that led DHL to complain to BOTA.During the hearing at the BOTA, DHL argued that the Ministry’s failure to provide particulars (that would enable it identify the disallowed transaction) and its request to enforce the collection of its controversial audit should be denied and dismissed.Also requested was that BOTA order the Ministry to provide to DHL details requested to substantial whether or not the MOF claims were genuine.Despite the evidence, BOTA ruled against DHL, stating that the “Ministry provided the taxpayer the reasonable reference used to disallow the taxpayer operating expense.”In the case of Lone Star, the company claimed that BOTA erroneously ruled confirming that Lone Star should make payment in the MOF’s audit report and its re-assessment bill for additional taxes, penalties and interest for the taxable period 2007 to 2011, to the tune of US$19,197,903.44.The cases are pending before the Tax Court for determination.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Theme park gets branded in family-friendly makeover

first_img“These are brands that they love and trust. And when they find them in a Six Flags, it increases their confidence level even further that they’re going to have a terrific day at the park.” Magic Mountain is one of theme park chain Six Flags’ premiere thrill parks. But on top of teenage thrill seekers, the company is hungry to attract families to its Valencia park. The fact that major brands want to partner with Six Flags is not surprising, given that park visitors are a captive audience of consumers. Along with bringing in new concessions, the park is getting a face-lift, cleaning up in hopes of attracting parents with kids and giving them reasons to come back. While teens have long made up the customer base, drawn by the thrill rides, the park wants adults who are likely to spend more on food and concessions. Work on the park includes a complete refurbishing of a 95-year-old Grand Carousel and a resurfacing and striping of the parking lot. VALENCIA – Families visiting Six Flags California’s Magic Mountain this spring will find plenty of brand-name ice cream and photographers ready to snap their pictures with Bugs Bunny on Kodak cameras as the theme park works to spruce up and reinvent itself. It’s all part of corporate owner Six Flags Inc.’s family-friendly strategy, in place this year for the first full season. Brand names are playing a big part in the new strategy. Cold Stone Creamery will dish out the ice cream, Kodak will do the photos, Heinz will be the official ketchup and the Nintendo Wii will hold the title of official video game console, which means park visitors can play Nintendo’s Wii for free. “When people come to our parks with their families, they want to find products and services that they’re familiar with,” said Wendy Goldberg, spokeswoman for Six Flags. Buildings at the Six Flags Plaza are also being painted, and two coasters that fell out of favor with riders and the park’s owners are being dismantled. The nation’s theme park market is growing, with total consumer spending expected to go from $11.2 billion in 2005 to $13.4 billion in 2010, according to a report released last year by PricewaterhouseCoopers. For Six Flags, the cross-branding strategy is new. Before Mark Shapiro became the company’s CEO in December 2005, individual parks handled their own corporate alliance agreements, and the only company-wide deal was with Coca-Cola, Goldberg said. Shapiro created a corporate alliances division to land deals with major brands, and now in addition to Coca Cola Co., Kodak, Cold Stone Creamery, Nintendo and Heinz, Six Flags partners include Home Depot and Papa John’s Pizza. Magic Mountain in Valencia starts daily operation March 17. Visitors will be given a Kodak photo card, which they can hand to photographers tagging along with the park’s Warner Bros. characters. Visitors will access the photos over the Internet when they get home. Cold Stone Creamery will open a shop in the park in early spring, said Sue Carpenter, spokeswoman for Magic Mountain and Hurricane Harbor. Attendance at Magic Mountain was 2.8 million in 2005, according to the PricewaterhouseCoopers report. Attendance dropped about 25 percent in the last half of 2006, which Shapiro blamed on uncertainty surrounding a possible sale of the park. Now, the park is no longer for sale, and the company is hoping the cross-branding strategy will increase the park’s profitability. “I think it will probably pay off,” said Jack Kyser, chief economist with the Los Angeles County Economic Development Corp. “Because probably people haven’t been to Magic Mountain for a while, so there is always the interest factor. And the economy is good, so they have money to spend.” Kyser called Six Flags’ cross-branding strategy “very savvy marketing,” and said it will help the company. “They can cement a reputation for being a family-friendly place,” he said. In past years, Magic Mountain has held a number of events that attract families. Those have included its Gospel Celebration and Hallelujah Jubilee concerts. It has areas for children, but the park is known more for its 15 heart-pounding rides. The park does plan to expand its offerings for children. Six Flags has capitalized on the kid-friendly appeal of British TV show Thomas & Friends, the Australian band The Wiggles and skateboarder Tony Hawk to build play areas and rides centered around them at its parks. Magic Mountain does not have any of those attractions this year, but it is working on getting some or all of them in the park in the near future, Carpenter said. Six Flags, the world’s largest regional theme park company, was facing $2.1 billion of debt last year. But in January, it announced a sale of seven parks for $312 million, bringing its total number of North American parks to 21. In the meantime, CEO Shapiro and his executive team are continuing to look for brand names to partner with. “This year is really the first year that Mark’s team will be able to have an impact on a full operating season,” Goldberg said. “So this is really the year that you are going to see the family-friendly strategy go into effect.” alex.dobuzinskis@dailynews.com (661) 257-5253160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

TRAGIC SUICIDE GIRLS’ MUM SAYS DAUGHTERS WOULD STILL BE ALIVE BUT FOR CHAT WEBSITES

first_imgThe mother of suicide victims Erin and Shannon Gallagher has claimed her daughters would still be alive but for internet sites like Ask.fm.The late Erin and Shannon GallagherLorraine Gallagher was reacting to claims by the owner of the Ask.fm website that teens often post comments about themselves to get attention.Ms Gallagher said she was disgusted by the website bosses’ claims which she said were “disrespectful” to her dead daughters. The 37 year old mum, who gave birth to a baby boy just two weeks ago, also revealed she is seeking legal advice on the claims through her solicitor.Ask.fm chief executive Mark Terebin said 90% of teens who claim they are being cyber-bullied are actually posting the comments themselves.He claimed “Kids lack attention mainly because parents are doing other things such as watching TV, drinking beer and reading the tabloids.“When they come to sites like these, they start trolling themselves so that their peers start protecting them. I this absurd way, they get the attention.” However, Lorraine Gallagher has slammed the claim saying Terebin is blaming teenagers while he profits on their misery.Ask.fm claims to have 50 million users around the world.Lorraine, from Ballybofey, lost her two daughters in a seven week period at the end of last year.Erin, 13, took her own life amidst claims that she was being bullied on the ask.fm site while sister Shannon also took her own life seven weeks later.Lorraine said at the time that Shannon simply could not go on without her little sister by her side. Reacting to Terebin’s claims, Ms Gallagher said that but for sites like ask.fm, her daughters would still be alive today.“The internet is such a horrible place and sites like these allow people to hide behind a wall and throw all sorts of vile allegations against young teenagers.“They are vulnerable and they believe what they read and go over it again and again.“In the end it just gets too much for many of them and it pushes them over the edge. “Why would teenagers write nasty things about themselves and push themselves to the edge and over the edge.“None of this makes any sense and he (Terebin) is just using this as an excuse while he gets rich off of the problems of teenagers,” she said.She added that he has never shown any compassion or remorse for the damage his website has caused to teenagers around the world.“He doesn’t care that I lost my girls or that thousands of other young teenagers have been hurt by the vile claims on his website.“He will have to live with himself knowing that he is operating a gateway of hatred that is only causing harm and doing no good whatsoever,” she said.TRAGIC SUICIDE GIRLS’ MUM SAYS DAUGHTERS WOULD STILL BE ALIVE BUT FOR CHAT WEBSITES was last modified: May 30th, 2013 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)Tags:ask.fmErin GallagherLOrraine Gallaghershannon gallagherlast_img read more

JENNINGS LEADS DONEGAL RALLY IN VOODOO SUBARU

first_imgGarry Jennings managed to reach the end of a thrilling day one of the Donegal International Rally with a 9.7 second cushion over the field, as Darren Gass moved himself to the head of the queue of pursuers.Gass had appeared content to tread carefully through the opening 3 stages of the event in near perfect conditions but on the second run through the 9 kilometres of Breenagh, Gass dug deeper and produced a stage win that thrust him closer to Jennings.Before that, Jennings in the Voodoo Subaru had been extending his lead, storming through the morning’s second and third stages after his first stage combatant Declan Boyle eventually retired with brake problems. Gass might have expected to trim a little more from Jennings’s cushion on the last stage of the day, the 12km of roller-coaster tarmac that brought leg one to a close, but instead he lost two seconds to Jennings.Given Jenning’s Donegal experience, Gass has a lot of hard work to do tomorrow and Sunday if he wants to stand on the top step on the finish ramp at the Mount Errigal hotel, Letterkenny on SundayGass conceded that the 16s margin he holds over a very hard charging third-placed Sam Moffett was his main focus, yet wouldn’t completely dismiss his chances of reeling in Jennings.“I’m very happy with the day and I’m looking forward to doing some racing tomorrow. There are two more long days and if everything is perfect it is even possible to try and catch Jennings and keep Moffett behind. But I reckon it will be hard to do two perfect days on the tough Donegal tarmac.” Moffett moved into third after stage 2 and Derek McGarrity starting to fall back, with a small gearbox problem. A wild moment on a long 6 left on Breenagh 1 didn’t help Daragh O’Riordan settle. Coupled with setup issues it hasn’t helped the Cork man and he lies in a lowly 7th at the end of the first day in his Fiesta WRC.Donagh Kelly is giving the left hand drive Airtricity Ford Focus WRC a steady debut with. A problematic morning with a few electrical issues set him back but he got on with it in the afternoon for a much improved run over the second loop of 3 stages.With wet weather beginning to roll in over the Donegal hills tonight, wet weather is forecast for the rest of the weekend, there is sure to be a few surprises in the leader board.Said Garry: “Day one done and dusted – 10sec lead over Gass, good day’ss rallying with great stages and the crowds of people out watching was mental.. Best all year I’d say.“Neil & myself are in good form and the car’s working good – wee spit of rain would make it interesting..Knockalla tomorrow – bring it on.” Garry Jennings/Neil Doherty Subaru WRC 27:49.62 Darren Gass/Enda Sherry Subaru S10 WRC + 0:09.73 Sam Moffett/James O’Reilly Subaru WRC +0:26.04 Derek McGarrity/James McKeeFord Focus WRC + 0:33.05 Seamus Leonard/Paul McLaughlin Subaru WRC +0:59.36 Donagh Kelly/Kevin Flanagan Ford Focus WRC +1:05.17 John O’Donnell/Aidan Friel Subaru WRC +1:08.78 Darragh O’Riordan/Tony McDaid Ford Fiesta WRC +1:25.99 Martin Doherty/Damian McCauley Mitsubishi Evo 9 +1:37.010 Stephen Wright/Susanne Wright Mitsubishi Evo 9 +1:50.6JENNINGS LEADS DONEGAL RALLY IN VOODOO SUBARU was last modified: June 22nd, 2013 by BrendaShare 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:JENNINGS LEADS DONEGAL RALLY IN VOODOO SUBARUlast_img read more

USL Preview: “The attitude and commitment since I took over has been first class” Gavin Cullen

first_imgCOCKHILL CELTIC PLAYER-MANAGER Gavin Cullen says that squad freshness has ensured that hunger hasn’t been an issue as they chase a fifth Ulster Senior League title in a row.Cockhill host another of the heavyweights this Sunday as they welcome Derry City Reserves to the Charlie O’Donnell Sports Grounds (2pm) for a clash of two of the League’s contenders.Cockhill have been League and Cup double winners in each of the last four seasons, while Derry, back in 2012, were the last League victors before Cockhill’s reign of glory began. “At times, you’d be sitting thinking the hunger is on the wane, but then the players remind you just how much they want it,” Cullen says.“It has been some commitment by these players to do what they have done and to keep going.“A couple of years before I took over, I thought it was dropping a bit, but the whole thing has been energised again. The attitude and commitment since I’ve taken over has been first class.”Cullen himself has been absent in recent weeks because of a hamstring injury, but could be in contention for a place on Sunday. Gerry Gill, Derek Doherty and Ryan Varma are hampered by injury, too, but are expected to be passed fit, although Garbhan Friel seems likely to be unavailable.Cullen has seen the likes of Peter Doherty, Paul McDermott and Ronan Doherty come into his ranks and take it by the scruff, while the returns of Oisin McColgan, Mark Moran and Ryan Varma have been key.“It all really adds to the depth of the squad,” says Cullen.“That is the key for success and the key for hunger. Competition for places is massive for us. Gerry Gill was away for a while, but came back last Christmas and when you see the desire he has to do well it just lifts the whole place.“We have 25 players on the first-team panel. I’d actually love more games to be honest so we could rotate and change it more.” Derry City Reserves have already flexed their muscle this season having hit Bonagee for seven recently and Cullen is expecting the Candystripes to offer a severe test of Cockhill’s credentials.He says: “You won’t know what sort of a side they’ll have out until we land on Sunday. With any other team you could make a fair stab at seven or eight players at least.“With Derry, you just can’t do that. We know the way they’ll play; they’ll be sharp and fast. It’s just the personnel we won’t know.“Derry have been very strong at this level. We’re well aware of their quality. They’ll be a quality side for us to play. They’re the best footballing side in the League.” “They’ve been brilliant for the League, in fairness. They always talk the League up and they’re really positive about it. The League has worked really well for them.”Cockhill come into the game on the back of an emphatic 7-0 win over Swilly Rovers in the Intermediate Cup on Sunday, when all the goals – including a Ronan ‘Olly’ Doherty hat-trick – came in the second half.Cullen says: “It was just important to win it. It would have been very disappointing not to go through. Swilly were well set up and defended well in the first half, but we got through in the second. In any Cup competition, getting the result is all that counts.”FIXTURESFour Lanterns Ulster Senior LeagueSunday, October 30, kick-off 2pmCockhill Celtic v Derry City Reserves          Vincent McLoughlin; Assistants – Packie Coll and tbcFanad United v Finn Harps Reserves         Marty QuinnLetterkenny Rovers v Bonagee United       Marty McGarrigleUSL Top goalscorers (League goals only)Max Karner (Derry City Reserves)                         3Cathal Farren (Derry City Reserves)                      2Aidan McLaughlin (Bonagee United)                      2Steve Okakpu-Emeka (Letterkenny Rovers)          2Christy Connaghan (Letterkenny Rovers)             2INTERMEDIATE CUPThe names of Cockhill Celtic and Bonagee United will be in the pot when the draw for the next round of the FAI Umbro Intermediate Cup is conducted.

I just thought it would be a good experience and gives me a chance to do something worthwhile.“So, I’m volunteering for a while out there and have raised a few quid to help those who have nothing.”Mooney has raised over €4,000 already.USL Preview: “The attitude and commitment since I took over has been first class” Gavin Cullen was last modified: October 26th, 2016 by Mark ForkerShare 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:Gavin CullenpreviewSportUSLlast_img read more
