TV sports presenter Gabby Logan has kept her promise to pay back all the money she owed from a controversial “tax shelter” scheme.
Yet almost a year after everyone involved was ordered to do the same, the payment from Gary Barlow and Take That bandmates Howard Donald and Mark Owen is still outstanding – to the tune of up to £20million.
The chart-topping trio have NOT appealed against a tax tribunal ruling from last May that the Icebreaker scheme they poured millions into was designed to exploit legal loopholes.
But a storm is brewing after it emerged it could be two more years before they pay the bill – while five other partnerships in the £340million scheme appeal.
Although the band have said they are keen to pay up, they are said to be waiting for the dust to settle first on the legal wrangling.
Yet we can disclose that their position is at odds with dozens of other clients caught up in the scheme, including Gabby, who have chosen to pay the Treasury everything they owe.
