STATEMENT: Wasps repsond to reports regarding HMRC

Wasps have followed Worcester’s lead by becoming the second Gallagher Premiership club to confirm ongoing dialogue with Her Majesty’s Revenue & Customs.

“We have a strong relationship with HMRC,” said a Wasps statement.

“In common with many businesses, we agreed a time-to-pay arrangement with HMRC coming out of Covid-19 lockdown.”

The statement added: “We will continue to engage in proactive discussions with them.

“Many companies and business sectors are in exactly the same situation after the most economically challenging two and a half years in living memory.

“Individual businesses in leisure, sport, entertainment, conferencing and hospitality have been hit particularly hard and we are involved in all five of those sectors.

“We have a robust business model with a busier than ever order book for concerts, conferences, exhibitions and other events which will see us prosper into the future.”
