Chester FC made a loss of £45,672 after tax for the financial year up to May 2018.

In a period that saw the Blues suffer a financial crisis in January of this year and come close to going out of business , the money raised by fans helped the club fight on and the ‘special reserve’ that had been around £100,000 at the start of last season was severely dented at the start of 2018.

But the accounts of Chester City Supporters’ Society Ltd show that the reserve is now back up to £95,000, with the club having £214,604 cash in the bank, up from £150,304 for the previous year.

Fundraising and donations totalled 123,682 for the year, an increase of £96,000 year on year, after fans dug deep to help the club following the January revelations.

As you can probably imagine, Royal Mail isn’t the most environmentally friendly of businesses due to the sheer number of vehicles it has on the road. The logistical behemoth is getting greener by the day, however, today beginning a new trial of cute, fully electric vans from Oxfordshire-based automaker Arrival. Nine commercial trucks of varying sizes with ranges of up to 100 miles will start operating out of Royal Mail’s central London depot from today, carrying parcels and post to other parts of the city and surrounding areas.

The electric vans are among the first vehicles rolling off the production line at Arrival’s new Banbury factory, which is apparently equipped to produce over 50,000 EVs per year using nothing but robots and a dash of AI. Arrival isn’t exactly a household name, primarily because the company [...]

How does the new data laws affect debt collection agencies?

The debt collection industry is already heavily regulated, for obvious reasons. But there’s a new guideline being introduced by the ICO from 25th May 2018 which adds another very important consideration to the list of your internal business costs and priorities.

What is the GDPR?

It’s the General Data Protection Regulation, and replaces the Data Protection Act of 1998, although a lot of the principles are the same.

There are two key adjustments of which you need to be aware: transparency over customer data, and accountability.

The GDPR ensures personal data is processed lawfully, fairly and transparently; taking care to explain to customers why you collect their data, what you’re doing with it, and what their rights are to manage the data you hold for them.

The accountability principle means you must be able to demonstrate compliance with the data protection principles – to show your workings, so to speak.
