Our meeting with the Chairman of the Revenue Commissioners is a chance for the Committee to discuss the structure, timing and operation of the scheme. The purpose of the meeting is to deal with any ambiguity and concerns in regards to the payment of the local property tax and, in some circumstances, to establish how the issue of how premature payments is dealt with and how payments will be made when they are actually due“We will also raise the issue of Revenue’s customer service on the issue – particularly how concerns are not related to the issue of compliancy, but an issue of good customer service, in which people who wish to pay the tax are finding that they are making the payment before its due date.” First Irish death from Coronavirus
FC Barcelona president Josep Maria Bartomeu says he does not wish to have any more disputes with club captain Lionel Messi.This was after the Argentina captain reluctantly opted to stay at the club this month after failing to force through a move. “I won’t get into any conflict with him. He’s our captain and the leader of our team,” Bartomeu said before the team’s 1-0 friendly win over Elche on Saturday.“I couldn’t let him leave the club. He is the best player of all time and the team needs him. Having Messi is a guarantee of success.”Messi had complained earlier this month that Bartomeu had not fulfilled a promise to allow him to break his contract unilaterally and leave the club without a transfer fee.He had also lashed out at the president’s leadership.But Bartomeu chose not to fire back against Barca’s all-time top goalscorer. Instead, he praised Messi for turning a page and performing well in the team’s pre-season matches, including scoring twice in a 3-1 win over Girona last week.“We have seen him do his talking on the pitch and we have moved on from the saga,” Bartomeu added.“We should congratulate ourselves for getting Messi to stay with us and for how he has behaved in the last few days. The best player in the world should stay at our home.”Bartomeu has been in the firing line ever since Barca’s historic 8-2 defeat to Bayern Munich in the 2019/2020 UEFA Champions League quarter-finals last month.He came under renewed pressure after a campaign group gathered over 20,000 signatures from members to force a vote of no-confidence against him. In compliance with the club’s statutes, Barca are currently validating the votes and if over 16,520 are approved, then a referendum will be held in the next three months.Two-thirds of 150,000 members are needed to vote against Bartomeu to force his dismissal.Yet Bartomeu, who will be leaving the role after elections in March regardless of what happens with the motion of censure, ruled out resigning.“The board and I will keep working to ensure we have the most competitive team possible,” he said.RelatedPosts Vidal lands in Milan to complete move from Barca to Inter Messi wins court case against cycling company over logo Messi scores twice in Barca friendly “We will speak again after validating the votes, but right now no one wants to quit.

MAINTAINING momentum will be the order of the day when the defending champions Guyana Jaguars clash with the Leeward Islands Hurricanes today in round two of the Regional Four-Day Championships at Warner Park in St Kitts.The Jaguars are second on the points table, but will definitely start this round as firm favourites, taking into consideration their huge win in the opening round on Monday.They currently sit on 17.8 points, .2 behind leaders Trinidad and Tobago Red Force.However, complacency will be the only thing that Leon Johnson and company will have to resist, but the Jaguars have never given the impression that this is something which imbeds itself in the way they operate.Monday’s win against the Jamaica Scorpions was the 18th time the Guyanese have gone undefeated since the 2013/2014 season.However, the contest will still generate a lot of interest in both countries, since the hosts have displayed plenty of character in their opening encounter, where they drew the game against former champions Barbados Pride last Monday at the venue.Antigua & Barbuda’s Rahkeem Cornwall led the Hurricanes’ charge when he finished with match figures of nine for 218.After that game, coach of Leeward Islands Hurricanes, Reginald Benjamin, has hailed his team’s positive start, as encouraging.He told the Daily Observer newspaper that his charges look forward to their match against the defending champions, adding that he expects the team to improve as the competition progresses.On the other hand, the Jaguars’ batting and bowling departments have definitively clicked as a unit in round one. Four batsmen scored half-centuries, while the bowlers did their part, especially left-arm spinners Gudakesh Motie and Veerasammy Permaul, but their fielding remains a concern.Head coach Esaun Crandon has urged his side to improve in this area, in order to be a competitive force.Jaguars earned their points from a 181-run win over Jamaica while Red Force blew away Windward Islands Volcanoes by nine wickets at Queen’s Park Oval, Trinidad.Hurricanes are on 8.8 points, Pride on 6, Scorpions 4.8 and Volcanoes 4.Teams earn 12 points for an outright victory while extra points for batting, spin bowling and pace bowling are also up for grabs.Meanwhile, in other second-round matches Scorpions take on Volcanoes at Sabina Park and Red Force play Pride at Queen’s Park Oval.
