St Jago taking it a game at a time

first_imgSt Jago High School remains one of the unbeaten schools in the ISSA/Digicel Manning Cup competition, and coach Davion Ferguson says his team’s outstanding performance is down to their game-by-game approach. The Spanish Town-based school ended the first half of the first round with four wins and a draw from five matches, and despite many touting them as a possible contender for the title, Ferguson is not getting carried away, but says he will continue to manage his team by focusing on each game as it comes and see where it takes them. St Jago play Greater Portmore in their return Group D game at Greater Portmore, and Ferguson’s aim is to win and create more ground between the other contenders. “We are not thinking about the second half (first round). We are thinking about Greater Portmore (today). That is going to be a big challenge. We are top of the table and want to continue to win and we play them at home. But whoever is behind us, we hope we can get a bit more breathing space between us, so we want to put in a very good performance,” he said. MOTIVATION He revealed that their unbeaten start has been a source of motivation and they intend to keep that unbeaten run for as long as possible. “In the first round we remained unbeaten. We started out with one of the toughest teams in Denham Town, and all things were not in place but we drew, but every game from that we have won and improved. We take it game by game as it’s a young team, balanced with experienced players. We use the experienced ones to get the young guys settled and keep their feet on the ground, because schoolboys can be inconsistent so we manage them game by game. “But we have ambitions like all the teams and what we want to focus on is playing game by, game. We are improving game by game and it’s a good sign that you are going in the right direction when every game you step up a notch, so I am not please with where we are now but pleased with the direction in which we are heading. We are unbeaten and we are going to try and see how long we can keep this unbeaten run going,” he said.last_img read more

Rangers stay silent on McCoist resignation reports

first_img1 Rangers have refused to comment on reports that Ally McCoist has offered his resignation as manager.The 52-year-old has come under pressure from supporters in recent weeks, with the Glasgow giants trailing Hearts by nine points in the race to win promotion from the Scottish Championship.Various reports on Friday suggested he had tendered his resignation, but a spokesperson for the club offered a brief “no comment” in response to the reports.It is believed McCoist will travel with the team as usual for the Friday evening league game at Queen of the South.The Rangers team bus left the club’s Murray Park training ground for the game against Queen of the South by a back exit on Friday afternoon although it was not clear if the boss was on board.McCoist was a real Ibrox favourite as a player, scoring 355 goals in all and was part of the Rangers team which won nine league titles in a row in the 1980s and 1990s.But his tenure as manager since taking over from Walter Smith in 2011 has been far from plain sailing.Supporters’ criticism of his tactics and signings have increased this season in the wake of some poor performances and results.Aside from defeats to Championship rivals Hearts and Hibernian, the Gers have failed to beat Alloa in three attempts, with the recent 3-2 Challenge Cup defeat to The Wasps – after blowing a two-goal lead – bringing McCoist’s managerial abilities under even more intense scrutiny.McCoist, who had been assistant to Smith, led Rangers through a turbulent time in the club’s history.Rangers entered administration in February, 2012 before liquidation saw them resume in the lowest tier of Scottish football.The former Scotland striker had famously said: “We don’t do walking away” at the height of the club’s crisis which strengthened his hero status in the eyes of the supporters.However, two successive title wins were no more than was expected for a club who continued to spend big money on players’ wages.Despite being unbeaten on his way to the League One title last season, McCoist was pilloried for Scottish League Cup defeats to Forfar and a loss in the Challenge Cup final to Raith Rovers.

Kentucky Proposes Market-Based Sourcing Rules

first_imgKentucky proposed regulatory changes for market-based sourcing and using a a single receipts factor corporate income tax apportionment formula.The regulation would incorporate new provisions in 2018 legislation.Market-Based Sourcing RulesReceipts from sales other than sales of tangible personal property are in Kentucky, if the taxpayer’s market for the sales is in the state. The proposed regulation establishes uniform rules for:determining whether the market for a sale is in Kentucky; andreasonably approximating the state or states of assignment if the location of the taxpayer’s market cannot be determined.Several of the assignment rules apply in sequential order. Taxpayers must also:determine the method of assignment in good faith and with reasonable effort;keep contemporaneous records that explain the determination; andexercise state-to-state and year-to-year consistency in the inclusion or exclusion of receipts.Sourcing for ServicesIn general, taxpayers must assign receipts from services to Kentucky if the services were delivered to a location in the state. The term “delivered to a location” refers to the location of the taxpayer’s market for the service. This may not be the location of the taxpayer’s employees or property.In-Person ServicesTaxpayers must assign receipts from in person services to Kentucky if the customer receives the service in the state. This includes services performed in Kentucky that relate to:the customer’s body, like hair cutting or X-ray services;the customer’s physical presence, like live entertainment or athletic performances;the customer’s real estate;the customer’s tangible personal property at the customer’s residence or in the customer’s possession; andthe customer’s tangible personal property that is shipped or delivered to the customer.Professional ServicesA taxpayer that delivers a professional service to an individual customer must assign the receipts to Kentucky if:the customer’s primary residence is in the state; orthe customer’s billing address is in the state.A taxpayer that delivers a professional service to a business customer must assign the receipts to Kentucky if:the contract of sale is principally managed by the customer in the state;the customer placed the order for the service in the state; orthe customer’s billing address is in the state.Taxpayers can also use a safe harbor rule for large volume transactions. A taxpayer can assign its receipts from services based on a particular customer’s billing address if the taxpayer:does not derive more than 5% of all its service receipts from that customer; andengages in substantially similar service transactions with more than 250 customers.Special rules apply to:taxpayers that derive more than 5% of all service receipts from a customer;services delivered physically or electronically for or through a customer;architectural and engineering services;financial services;broadcast advertising services; andservices sold to related members that own or control the taxpayer.Intangible PropertyTaxpayers must assign receipts to Kentucky from the license or sale of intangible property used in the state. The assignment depends on the type of license or nature of the property sold. This includes distinct sourcing rules for:marketing intangibles;production intangibles;broadcasting intangibles;mixed intangibles;contract rights or government licenses that authorize use in a specific geographic area;software transactions;digital goods or services; andtransactions that resemble the sale of goods or services.Throwout RulesReceipts from other than tangible personal property must be thrown out of the receipts factor if:the taxpayer is not taxable in the state where it assigns the receipts; orthe state of assignment cannot be determined or reasonably approximated.Industry Specific Sourcing RulesThe regulation sets forth receipts factor sourcing rules for various industries. This includes rules for:bargelines;buslines;passenger airlines;pipelines;public service companies;air freight forwarders;railroads;regulated investment companies (RICs);securities brokerage services; andtrucklines.Public Hearing and Comment PeriodKentucky will hold a public hearing for the proposed regulation on December 21, 2018.
