Update August 2017 – UniMed UK’s dubious Sound Foundation Community Care Charity and its mystery VAT debt

SFCC-driveway-2015August 2016 I reported UK’s HM Revenue & Customs landed rewarded our complaints about Universal Medicine’s sham UK charity with a big fat tax bill to Sound Foundation Community Care. Almost £400,000. Update August 2017: Either I misinterpreted the charity’s 2014-15 end of year accounts or UM are telling lies in official documents. According to the charity’s accounts, released in the last week or two, the charity’s VAT debt was incurred as part of the charity’s transfer from trust to an incorporated company. UM says the VAT was refunded. Strangely, in spite of me repeatedly asking the charity’s trustees to explain how a £378k VAT liability appeared on the charity’s accounts, they made no attempt to correct my mistaken interpretation. None. I’m happy to retract my statements from last year and apologize to readers for the misunderstanding. If there was one. Will we receive an explanation for the outstanding anomalies in the accounts? And we’re still left with the problem that literally anyone can register a charity in the UK and take advantage of charity laws for personal financial benefit.

Universal Medicine has a charity in the UK. The charity commission in the UK would not give UM charity status. Fortunately for us Chris James, one of the esoteric students had an existing charity called “the sound foundation” which he is allowing UM to use, as he does not need it. Esoteric Development Group lecture notes taken by Elizabeth Dolan, December 17, 2011.
