TPR orders former owner of retailer BHS to pay £9.5m into schemes

first_imgIn January 2018, the panel ruled that two contribution notices for a total of £9.5m be issued against Chappell. He appealed the decision but following a lengthy legal process his referral was struck out by the upper tribunal. The contribution notices against him were subsequently issued in August 2019.Nicola Parish, TPR’s executive director of frontline regulation, said: “We are pleased that the decision to issue two contribution notices to pay money into the BHS pension schemes stands.“This case illustrates how TPR is willing to pursue a case through the courts to seek redress for pension savers. It illustrates the situations our anti-avoidance powers were designed to meet and which allow us to protect the retirement incomes that savers deserve.”The Pension Protection Fund is responsible for obtaining the money from Chappell for the benefit of the pension schemes. Sir Philip Green, whose retail group sold BHS to Chappell in 2015, reached a settlement with TPR in 2017 to pay £363m to the BHS pension schemes. The Pensions Regulator (TPR) has published a determination notice detailing its decision to issue contribution notices for £9.5m (€11m) against Dominic Chappell regarding two pension schemes connected to the collapsed high street chain BHS.The issuing of the two contribution notices marks the end of TPR’s anti-avoidance enforcement against Chappell, which started in 2016. Retail Acquisitions Limited, of which he was a majority shareholder, bought BHS for the nominal sum of £1 in 2015 and the retailer fell into administration a year later.According to the information released by the regulator this week, the Determinations Panel decided that a series of acts were materially detrimental to the pension schemes, which included the acquisition of BHS, management decisions of the company, the appointment of inexperienced board members, the implementation of an inadequate business plan and the way money was extracted and distributed to Chappell, advisers, company directors and family members.last_img read more

5 things to watch in Game 2 of the NBA Finals

first_imgSan Antonio Spurs forward Tim Duncan listens to a question during a news conference on Saturday, June 7, 2014, in San Antonio. The team plays Game 2 of the NBA Finals against the Miami Heat on Sunday. (AP Photo/Eric Gay)SAN ANTONIO (AP) — The San Antonio Spurs and Miami Heat expect more comfortable conditions, and better overall play, in Game 2 of the NBA Finals.The Spurs won 110-95 in the opener, a game that will be best remembered for an air conditioning failure that made temperatures soar to nearly 90 degrees in the second half. LeBron James cramped up in the heat and left with about 4 minutes remaining.The teams spent their two off days practicing at the Spurs’ training facility while the AT&T Center was being used for other events. They will be back in the arena, where the Spurs have won an NBA-record eight straight playoff games by 15 or more points, for Game 2.Here are five things to watch Sunday night:___HEAT’S HEALTH: James had two days of treatment after he couldn’t make it to the finish of Game 1 because of cramps. He practiced Saturday and has said he expects to be 100 percent for Sunday night.He’s had cramping problems before, missing part of Game 4 of the 2012 NBA Finals, so his condition will have to be monitored. But James doesn’t sound too concerned.“I’m doing well, doing a lot better. The soreness is starting to get out,” he said. “I’m feeling better than I did yesterday and with another day, I should feel much better tomorrow.”___WEATHER REPORT: It’s expected to be much cooler inside the AT&T Center on Sunday.The breaker that failed Thursday night, which NBA Commissioner Adam Silver said was about the size of a car battery, was repaired by Friday afternoon. San Antonio’s WNBA team played a home game Saturday night without issues, and the Heat are expecting a much different climate than they faced in Game 1.“We anticipate we will play in a very cool gym. We will have to deal with that now,” coach Erik Spoelstra said. “I don’t know if guys will be wearing tights under their shorts and long-sleeved shirts. I don’t know.”___KEEP IT CLEAN: The Spurs committed 23 turnovers that led to 28 Miami points in the opener. The Heat were almost as sloppy, turning it over 18 times for 27 points.“My guess is you won’t see that tomorrow night, turnover-wise,” Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said Saturday. “I don’t think either one of us will turn it over as much as we did. In that regard, we were both pretty sloppy.”___SEND SUBS?: Dwyane Wade and James have both said the Heat may have benefited from a deeper rotation in Game 1.Spoelstra used only four reserves in the hot conditions, and James said Saturday he could’ve seen where Udonis Haslem, or James Jones or Toney Douglas could have gotten a few minutes to keep the starters fresher for the finish.“Spo is going to coach the game the way he sees the game going and flowing, and we’re definitely going to ride with that, the way he calls the game,” James said. “And like I said, Thursday’s game was extreme measures. And I don’t expect that tomorrow night, but we’ll see.”___MEN IN THE MIDDLE: Spurs big men Tim Duncan and Tiago Splitter combined to make 14 of 16 shots in Game 1, with Duncan scoring 21 points and Splitter adding 14. San Antonio outscored Miami 48-36 in the paint.The Heat have been employing a small starting lineup with Chris Bosh at center and Rashard Lewis as an undersized power forward, and will have to find a way to contain the Spurs’ bigs.“We need to do what we do better and harder,” Spoelstra said. “They make it tough with their passing and, you know, getting into the paint with their roles and spreading you out with 3-point shooters. So we need to do that better, there is no question about it. Those were big-time relief points.”___Follow Brian Mahoney on Twitter: http://www.twitter.com/Briancmahoneylast_img read more
