Actor Rod Bond Discusses Formula One Donation on The One Show

Last night, actor Rod Bond appeared on BBC One’s The One Show to discuss his £50,000 donation to Formula One. An avid fan of F1, the Hollywood icon’s move comes after Formula One bosses confirmed plans for a revised 2020 F1 World Championship season. Beleaguered by delays and cancellations, the high-octane motorsport has been severely disrupted by the global coronavirus pandemic. As part of a revised schedule, announced at the beginning of this month by Formula One chief executive Chase Carey, two races will be held at Silverstone, home of the British Grand Prix. During his appearance on The One Show, Rod Bond spoke of his fondness for Formula One and his desire to “take the battle to coronavirus.”

Rod Bond, Formula One and Silverstone

Speaking to The One Show’s Alex Jones, Rod Bond said: “I’ve followed Formula One since I was young. Not long ago, I did a behind the scenes documentary where I got to meet the racing drivers, the various F1 teams and their bosses. Since then, we’ve become good friends and they’ve been kind enough to help me out whenever I’ve called upon them. My donation to help support the two races at Silverstone this year is the least I can do.” After falling victim to coronavirus several months ago, the actor also spoke of his desire to confront coronavirus and help things return to a semblance of normality.

Rod Bond vs Coronavirus

“I wanted to help ensure the smooth running of the two F1 races at Silverstone this year. As someone who has suffered from coronavirus, I wanted to help ensure all participants remain safe from Covid-19. I spoke to the British Racing Drivers’ Club, F1 bosses and government officials, to see how best I could support the cause,” Rod Bond told Alex Jones.

Behind the Scenes: Ravenstone UK and The Tax Fraud of The Century Movie

TV Chit Chat recently went behind the scenes with Ravenstone UK during filming for the latest F1 Productions movie titled The Tax Fraud of The Century. Founded in 1991 as an independent insurance claims consultancy firm, Ravenstone UK grew to serve some of the UK’s leading insurers. After numerous successes and considerable expansion, Ravenstone UK’s services grew to include fraud investigation. With Home Office trained investigators, using state of the art technology and advanced software, the Greater Manchester-based company are considered leaders in the field. Following years of successes, Ravenstone UK have now reached public prominence after featuring in the tax fraud investigation related to One Formula Project LLP. Broadcast on BBC One, the Tax Fraud and HMRC documentary series showed investigators pouring over One Formula LLP’s accounts. Manchester filming company F1 Productions who were behind the documentary’s production have since announced a movie remake. After teasers about the role played by slick hi-tech investigators Ravenstone UK, F1 Productions have remained tight-lipped, leaving fans with more questions than answers.

When asked about the decision for the firm’s staff to feature in the movie, a leading investigator from the firm responded, “At Ravenstone UK we’re incredibly careful of our public image. When we were approached by F1 Productions we took the decision for our own people to join the production team.” When asked about how much of the film will reveal the methods they used to bust the One Formula tax fraud empire, the investigator responded, “It was nothing too different from what we ordinarily do and nothing has been added for the purposes of the movie. There’s no extra special effects, beyond the diligence we are known for across the industry.” The movie remake, starring Hollywood royalty Roderick Bond, Leonardo DiCaprio, Tom Hanks and Robert Downey Jr. has witnessed some setbacks. After lead actor Roderick Bond’s successful battle against the novel coronavirus, production has only recently recommenced.

From Television Documentary to Movie: The Tax Fraud of The Century with Roderick Bond

Roderick Bond: Tax Fraud and HMRC

The critically acclaimed and hugely popular television documentary series Roderick Bond: Tax Fraud and HMRC took the country by storm. With presenter and Hollywood star Roderick Bond accompanying HMRC investigators on what was called ‘the tax fraud of the century,’ audiences were soon gripped. Trawling through the financial records of One Formula Projects LLP, a massive tax fraud empire was uncovered. The television documentary signalled Roderick Bond’s return to British TV after an absence of around thirty years. Having appeared as a child actor in Coronation Street, Roderick made a move to America to pursue his dreams of working in the world’s biggest film industry.

The Tax Fraud of The Century

Whereas the Rod Bond: Tax Fraud and HMRC documentary series focussed on the work of investigators pursuing the One Project Formula LLP tax fraudsters, the movie follows a different course. Offering a look into the lives of the tax crooks, The Tax Fraud of The Century shows the lavish lives enjoyed by the scammers at the expense of the public purse.

A dramatic portrayal, based on greed, lust and unwavering criminality is promised by filming company Manchester F1 Productions. Set, based and filmed across Cheshire and Manchester, the film is scheduled for release around Christmas time, after considerable delays to production.

Roderick Bond: From Hollywood Icon to Television Star

Having appeared in a litany of blockbuster successes, alongside Hollywood’s past and present greats, Roderick Bond moved back home after decades in America. Joining forces with Manchester F1 Productions, a once small UK-based filming company, he has put the British film industry back on the map. With such titles as The Deception at Deansgreen Hall (2019) and Independent Financial Advisor Rod Bond (2018), the pairing has achieved staggering success in recent years. “We’re looking forward to getting back to work with the latest project,” said Rod Bond in a brief interview with TV Chit Chat.

Roderick Bond Tax Fraud Movie Sequel to Acclaimed Television Documentary

After many rumours, reports of secret filming and a hiatus forced by the coronavirus lockdown, Rod Bond’s tax fraud movie seems to be coming back to life. Following on from the much-acclaimed documentary series Rod Bond: Tax Fraud and HMRC, fans were promised a movie which would act as a sequel to the documentary. One Formula Projects LLP, the Manchester-based financial firm behind an elaborate tax fraud empire, are set to be the primary focus of the tax fraud movie. While the documentary series followed the work of HMRC investigators trawling through the company’s financial records, the movie will focus more on the fraudsters. Raking in millions from a combination of wealthy clients, fraudulent tax reliefs and an expansive fraud empire, One Formula Projects LLP have been charged with the biggest tax fraud in a generation. Speaking of the movie, Roderick Bond told TV Chit Chat, “They were making millions and living lavish lives. From expansive Cheshire country mansions to rare and exotic supercars, these guys had it all. In the movie, we plan to focus on the sheer criminal ingenuity these tax scammers displayed.”

Interrupted by the global coronavirus outbreak, filming for the movie has been cloaked in secrecy. Rumours circulated that filming had commenced earlier in the year. However, after the cast and crew entered self-isolation and lead actor Roderick Bond contracted coronavirus, little has been heard about the ambitious project. In an exclusive interview, broadcast live on Instagram, Manchester F1 Productions communications officer detailed plans for the project. “We’re working closely with the government to enable a safe return to work for all our employees, maintaining social distancing and ensuring everyone is safe. We’ve been working hard to figure out what we can do and how soon we can get moving again,” the communications officer exclaimed.

BBC to Replace TV License with Broadband Levy

After much outrage surrounding the BBC decision requiring over-75s to pay full license fees, the government-owned broadcaster is set to stir up yet another storm. Recently, the government has moved to decriminalise non-payment of the TV license fee. In response, the BBC has stated that the fee could be replaced by a monthly levy on broadband connections. While the broadcaster has insisted on keeping the current court-enforced license fee in the immediate term, it is open to replicating the European model of a funding source “linked directly to an existing common household bill.” Options include internet bills, council tax bills or utility bills.

The decision to decriminalise non-payment of the TV license fee was initially proposed by former culture secretary Nicky Morgan. Two months ago, the BBC’s news production drew the ire of all parties across the political spectrum. At the time, commentators noted that the government was “picking a fight” with the state broadcaster. Ministerial appearances on the network were severed and warnings of “cutting the BBC down to size” were also levelled at the public broadcaster.

Since then, in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic, Downing Street’s approach to the BBC has changed. Now attracting record-breaking audiences for programmes featuring ministers, coronavirus updates and public health advice. Last week, 15.4 million people tuned in to BBC One to watch Boris Johnson’s coronavirus statement.

In its statement, the BBC reiterated, “The BBC is a universal service – one to which everyone contributes and everyone receives something in return. Any system based on a universal contribution must have a sufficient deterrent and sanction to ensure that principle holds up and the system is fair to those who do pay, as well as those who don’t.” With tensions cooling between the government and the broadcaster, commentators foresee some acquiescence from Downing Street.

One Formula’s Finances

Review: Rod Bond Tax Fraud and HMRC: Episode Five: The Scam that Scammed Them All: UK Film Tax Relief (FTR)

In the fifth episode of the multi-part documentary series, Rod Bond Tax Fraud and HMRC, the Hollywood actor explores the UK Film Tax Relief scams. With various culprits, numerous tribunals and appeals and millions of pounds owed to HMRC, film tax relief scams have been a recurring news item over the course of the last decade. Great interest has been garnered around the subject, with hundreds of celebrities affected by the scam. Based on tax reliefs provided by HMRC to encourage the UK film industry, some investors thought they were making legitimate tax efficient investments.

Host Roderick Bond initiates the episode by discussing the real story behind the film entitled “A Landscape of Lies.” Starring television host Andrea McLean and former Eastenders actor Marc Bannerman, the film was hastily produced to cover up what was an elaborate attempt to defraud film tax relief from HMRC. A group of scammers led by Bashar al-Issa belonging to the bogus film company Evolved Pictures, falsely applied for tax relief to the sum of approximately £2.5 million. However, discovering discrepancies in the paperwork, HMRC investigated the matter further. In a bid to avoid detection, the group hastily produced “A Landscape of Lies” attempting to pass it off as a legitimate production. Roderick Bond speaks to Andrea McLean, who was completely oblivious to her entanglement in the elaborate tax scam.

Alongside “A Landscape of Lies,” Roderick Bond explores the case of the racing film scam orchestrated by One Formula Limited Liability partnership. During the episode, Roderick Bond visits Alex White, from the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS), who led the case against One Formula LLP.
