Jose Mourinho has ‘gone over the top’ with Ashley Barnes attack

first_imgJohn Barnes admits he has sympathy for Ashley Barnes after Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho described his clash with Nemanja Matic as ‘criminal’.The Serbian was sent off for his reaction to the incident during Burnley’s 1-1 Premier League draw at Stamford Bridge on Saturday.The Blues chief appeared on Sky Sports programme Goals on Sunday and said he was unhappy that a red card had not been shown to the Clarets star.The incident plays up to Mourinho’s view that there is an ‘agenda’ against the west London club, but Barnes insists the Portuguese is wrong.“Jose Mourinho has gone a bit over the top a bit about Ashley Barnes,” he told the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast show. “I have a little bit of sympathy with Ashley Barnes.“It wasn’t even a tackle. He was going to pass the ball to the full back. He’s followed through and caught him.“It looked worse than it actually was. I don’t think you should be attacking players [like that]. Referees are not against Chelsea, they make mistakes. Jose’s gone a bit over the top.”last_img read more

Sponsors May Use Forfeitures to Fund QMACs and QNECs (NPRM REG-131643-15)

first_imgCCH Tax Day ReportThe IRS has issued proposed regulations amending the definitions of qualified matching contributions (QMACs) and qualified nonelective contributions (QNECs) to allow employers with plans that permit the use of amounts in plan forfeiture accounts to offset future employer contributions under the plan to apply such amounts to fund QMACs and QNECs. Taxpayers may rely on these proposed regulations.Under current regulations, to qualify as a QMAC or QNEC, contributions must satisfy nonforfeitability and distribution requirements at the time the contributions are made. Commenters have asserted that employer contributions should be able to qualify as QMACs and QNECs as long as they satisfy applicable nonforfeitability and distribution requirements at the time they are allocated to participants’ accounts. The reason is that requiring satisfaction of applicable nonforfeitability and distribution requirements at the time amounts are first contributed would preclude plan sponsors with plans that permit the use of amounts in plan forfeiture accounts to offset future employer contributions under the plan from applying such amounts to fund QMACs and QNECs.Under the proposed regulations, employer contributions would qualify as QMACs or QNECs if they satisfied applicable nonforfeitability requirements at the time they are allocated to participants’ accounts, but need not meet these requirements when they are contributed to the plan.These regulations are proposed to apply to tax years beginning on or after the date of publication of the Treasury decision adopting these rules as final regulations in the Federal Register. Taxpayers, however, may rely on these proposed regulations for periods preceding the proposed applicability date. If, and to the extent, the final regulations are more restrictive than the rules in these proposed regulations, those provisions of the final regulations will be applied without retroactive effect.Comments RequestedComments and requests for a public hearing must be received by 90 days after publication in the Federal Register.
