Allardyce was an investor along with many high profile people and was not one of the architects of the scheme.Allardyce said: “Most of the punters don’t owe it. In fact most of the punters, actually the taxman owes them money.”But because the country’s so skint, they come to government and say we’re skint, government says we’re skint how we gonna get the money. Let’s change the laws and let’s just fly out these demands. “If you invested in this tax scheme, where they pay the tax back, for investing in new businesses, or in regeneration zones, do you know what I mean, in current poverty areas.“But HMRC, you have to pay it back even if you don’t owe it.“The most corrupt, it’s the most corrupt business in the country at the minute, HMRC”.Allardyce, McIlroy and Rooney have always denied any wrongdoing. The same year Allardyce, then manager of Sunderland FC, was caught up in a £275million tax fraud involving a fake film company.The CPS is currently seeking to recover some £100million from the scheme’s ringleaders, four of whom were convicted in June. Allardyce, whose future as England head coach is on the brink as the Football Association considers the revelations of the Telegraph investigation, was named in 2013 in connection with HMRC’s inquiry into a £450million tax scam.Footballer Wayne Rooney and golfer Rory McIlroy were also among those who invested in the government-backed scheme, which offered tax relief for investing in deprived areas.There is no suggestion that any of the three did anything wrong. Tax avoidance is not illegal in the UK. Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp? Sign up to our free twice-daily Front Page newsletter and new audio briefings.
