The maths is wrong. VAT is at 20% therefore the base figure from £1.2m is £1m not £960,000

£1,000,000 plus 20% = £1,200,000 so the VAT element is only £200,000 NOT £240,000 as you suggested.

See?


http://www.vatcalculator.co.uk/ I would have agreed but the vat calculator says differently.

20% of £1,200,000 is quite rightly £240,000 but that is NOT how VAT works. You can only go back to the base figure then ADD the 20% VAT. In this case, the base figure is £1,000,000 plus VAT at 20% (£200,000) = £1,200,000.

If you then try to remove 20% from that figure, which Helgy did, then, yes that does add up to £240,000 but the maths is WRONG because he was also including the 20% of the £200,000 which has been added as VAT.

It really is not difficult!

As Auditing and VAT was part of your job Dean I agree with you.
But now Posh has informed me where the £200,000 came from You are correct.

Just crazy bearing in 3/ 4 years we were struggling to get 1500 on a Saturday.

Was on wikipedia this aft looking for the population of Lincoln and the surrounding area to see what kind of percentage we've sold against head of population.
Lincoln has around 100,000 inhabitants now and when you add in areas like Hykeham and Washingborough it goes to 130,000.
Lincoln and it's surrounding area seem to growing quite quickly this may explain why we've sold so many season tickets as now the team have been successful (at long last!) we have a population catchment to help the club still further.
Our population must compare favourably to other clubs in this league similar to the likes of Chesterfield and Mansfield, smaller than Luton and Swindon but bigger than Stevenage and Morecambe.
An average crowd of 7000 next season out of a catchment area of 130,000 is pretty good granted I know people come from further area than that like Eric for example.
But the potential for further growth of club is there imho.
Exciting times ahead if things are put in place.

That's how I got hooked. Graham Taylor and John Ward came to present us with our winners medals Scouts and showed off the Division 4 Trophy at school. If not for that I would have been a Leeds Untied supporter first, instead of second.

Lovely story that, mate.

Will you be able to get to see the Imps in action next season?  I'm guessing Crewe, Port Vale, Cheltenham, Coventry and maybe Newport as they are fairly close to you?
