Hearts agree HMRC settlement

Hearts have announced a resolution has been agreed with HMRC in a dispute over tax and national insurance contributions.

The 1.75million dispute was revealed in the share issue brochure as Hearts launched a scheme to raise 1.79m at the end of October.

Now Hearts have come to an agreement to pay 1.5m over a three-year period.

The deal is separate to the settlement of a 450,000 bill on Monday which staved off the threat of a winding-up order.
