    Maybe redraft? It's not quite true to say they 'don't pay rates' (except in Sunderland).

    How about:

    NO MORE SCIENTOLOGY TAX BREAKS

    or

    TAXPAYERS FUND SCIENTOLOGY

    or

    SCIENTOLOGY's £1.3m TAX BREAK

    or something like that?

    Re: $ci rates relief flier

    You might also point out COSRECI is NOT a charity in Australia, even thought the UK branch, supposedly operating under their auspices, claims it is to get their tax break. That's called fraud most places.

    I like the flier as it stands - the whole 'charity' thing leads to info overload; and the fact that the cult might pay rates on their lower-value (for rates) properties is superfluous. Keep it hard hitting, and avoid the 'buts' and 'ands'.

    Change the headline to:


    YOU PAY TAX.
    SO WHY DOESN'T THE 'CHURCH' OF $CIENTOLOGY?

    Disagree. Top line should refer to cult and tax.

    How about

    Scientology does not pay rates.
    YOU pay their taxes!

    Re: $ci rates relief flier

    Rates are a kind of tax. You will have more impact if you refer to them as TAX in the headline. Explain detail of exactly what tax in the bodycopy

    I think you should state that they are not recognised as a religion and do not have charitable status in the UK because they are deemed OF NO PUBLIC BENEFIT by the charity commission

    Re: $ci rates relief flier

    A tailor-made flyer to drop in businesses might be a good idea too.
    Business rates is a huge chunk of money to pay every month before that business can start making a profit. It will annoy many of them that a non-charity in their area is getting such tax breaks, especially those struggling businesses who have made other types of borderline relief claims in the past (such as hardship relief) and been rejected.

    Scientology doesn't pay property tax!
    Council thinks YOU should pay it for them.

    Except there isn't a new 5m Ideal Org on 51 Fawcett Street. Just The Tardis which is closed most of the time.

    Re: $ci rates relief flier

    Ok the main text of flier, any changes needed?



    Scientology does not pay rates

    In Britain, the church operates as COSRECI - Church of Scientology Religious Educational College Inc, a not for profit organisation, which filed an income of £12,958,196 in 2008. (They have been known to claim they are an Australian charity, so as to get tax breaks, this is in fact FALSE, COSRECI is NOT a charity in Australia.) Despite its wealth, and the Charity Commission’s ruling that the church isn’t a charity for religious purposes, the City of London grants 80% relief for its “London Org” (i.e. HQ) on Queen Victoria Street, thus saving it a total of £1,306,363 in rates since the centre opened in 2006.

    Westminster council gives 80% relief on its “London Celebrity Centre” in Leinster Gardens, saving it £165,303 over the past decade. Birmingham council gives 80% relief on the Scientology property at Winston Churchill House. Sunderland council gives a FULL 100% to the new £5m “Org” on Fawcett Street. Whether the church enjoys rates relief on the most famous Scientology property in Britain, its “stress test centre” on Tottenham Court Road, is a secret: Camden council refuses to say.

    Re: $ci rates relief flier

    As said before, they don't have a "new £5m “Org” on Fawcett Street".
  23. Anonxmous Member

    Re: $ci rates relief flier

    I made about 15 minor tweaks, none are critical - tightening up the text in places - I think 'subsidy' works better than 'saving', etc. There's a handy site at [NOPARSE]http://www.quickdiff.com/index.php that lets you compare.[/NOPARSE]

    Re: $ci rates relief flier

    ok how about this?


    In Britain, the church operates as COSRECI - Church of Scientology Religious Educational College Inc, a not for profit organisation, which filed an income of almost £13 million pounds in 2008. (They have claimed to be an Australian charity, to get tax breaks; this is FALSE - COSRECI is NOT a charity in Australia.) Despite its wealth, and the UK Charity Commission ruling that the church is not a charity for religious purposes.

    City of London grants 80% relief for its “London Org” (i.e. HQ) on Queen Victoria Street, subsidising it by £1,306,363 since the centre opened in 2006.

    Westminster council gives 80% relief on its “London Celebrity Centre” in Leinster Gardens; a subsidy of £165,303 over the past decade.

    Birmingham council gives 80% relief on the Scientology property at Winston Churchill House.

    Sunderland council gives a 100% relief to the “Org” on Fawcett Street.

    Camden council refuse to say if the church receives rates relief on its “stress test centre” on Tottenham Court Road.

    Re: $ci rates relief flier

    [STRIKE]^The "new £5m "Org" on Fawcett St.

    Incorrect.

    51 Fawcett St is the Sunderland City Centre shop with the blue doors. Yes it gets the rates relief at Fawcett St. but the big new Idle Org you mention is actually the shitty old boarded-up ex-nursing home building in Gateshead. The cult refers to it as the Northumbria Ideal Org.[/STRIKE]

    [edit: I suck. I was on page 1. I see you made the changes]
