Morecambe FC under embargo from EFL over unpaid tax bill

Morecambe Football Club has been placed under embargo from the English Football League over payments due to HMRC.

The Shrimps have failed to comply with EFL regulation 17.3 – relating specifically to amounts due to HMRC.

This means that the club are prevented from strengthening the team or adding to playing staff costs until such time as it has met its existing financial obligations and/or the club has rectified the relevant breach to the EFL’s satisfaction.

Embargoes are intended to operate as a deterrent against clubs defaulting on financial obligations to clubs or players, or breaching other key relevant regulations, such as reporting on financial matters.

It’s understood that the embargo has been in place since last Wednesday.

Morecambe FC has declined to comment formally on the matter.
