taxes and fundraising dinners

I just read the post on the fundraising dinner in 2010. Happy days! I'm pretty sure they can't do that anymore, doubt very much if there are many celebrities left to take part.

MCCANNS' STAR-FILLED PARTY TO BOOST FUND -EXPRESS
DEFIANT Kate and Gerry McCann will mark the 1,000th day since their daughter disappeared with a celebrity packed £150-a-head fundraising dinner and auction at a top London venue. {Heavily Snipped}
Money will be raised through ticket sales and a charity auction. Half the profits, expected to exceed £100,000, will go to Madeleine’s Fund, which currently stands at about £400,000, with the other half split between two other charities.
A close friend of the McCanns, who live in Rothley, Leicestershire, said: “Kate and Gerry are hoping to raise as much money as possible to help them and two other charities.

I had missed the calculations here.
1 The celebs paid £ 150 a head to attend. Much of that would be for venue, food, champagne, New Zealand Chardonnay and so on. There might be £ 20 a head left over for the cause, though that is unlikely.

"Half the profits, expected to exceed £100,000.."
100,000 / 180 = £ 555, so everyone there has to chip in 150 PLUS 555, an average of £ 700.

2 "A close friend of the McCanns, who live in Rothley, Leicestershire, said: “Kate and Gerry are hoping to raise as much money as possible to help them...".
Their close friends and family, and spokesmen really have a way with words, don't they.

fund

Do the pair ever publish information about what they are doing to actively search for their missing daughter? Please direct me to a site where i can find this info as I have never heard or seen any evidence that the fund is being used for its stated purpose.

Under law they do not have to as are Directors of a Limited Company by Guarantee (usually used by some charities and bowling clubs etc). They have to disclose no more information to the public than BP, Shell, M & S though to Companies House.

The fact that the McCanns' say in their website they have appointed a fund administration to ensure the "highest standards of transparency and accountability" apparently means no more either - as they are transparent in terms of tax (I.E. VAT, Corporation tax) etc. They don't mean transparent to their poor "donors" who are holding bring and buy sales, getting their kids to empty their piggy banks etc. As financially supporting the McCann family is part of the 3 initial main aims then the are not breaking the law legally (morally - they should be strung up) IMO!

Not sure if this is anything you havent seen before, but it is a statement from CM.

The primary objective of the fund, a not-for-profit company, was to help efforts to find Madeleine, but it can also provide financial support for her parents to cope with the stress, he said.

I can see that the No Stone Unturned Fund has had a change of address. It is now:

10 Queen Street Place
London EC4R 1BE

There are more than 20 businesses listed within this postcode

Anyone interested, here is the link:

Thanks for posting the link. 

So it looks like end game for the fund - despite the limited company's specified exemption from transparency (legal, not moral), there is an apparent deficit of cash in the bank in excess of 500,000k (that's half a million in pounds shillings and pence) between the accounts for the previous year this laest audit.

Question is, have the fund administrators been spending lavishly on the 'search' or has a tidy little sum been relocated in anticipation of some forthcoming expense.

Can't say I'm surprised, I doubt if anyone is foolish enough to donate anymore and all other avenues for income dried-up long ago.  Has Kate McCann the audacity to publish an epilogue?

'Cash' has gone, but £490k has been moved into 'Fixed Assets'.

We have no idea what this relates to (property maybe?)but the value is still there and hasn't been spent on the search.

We also have no idea what they received and spent last year, but anything they did receive (if anything) has been spent.

£490k moved to 'Fixed Assets' - nice and tidy rounded sum, £70k apiece to keep buying the silence of the Tapas 7  Wink
