    The 2013 accounts of MG Motor UK Ltd were posted at Companies House today 8 October 2014.

    1) The financial highlight is that a £26m loan from parent Nanjing Automobile Corporation (UK) was written off meaning that MG Motor UK now has net asset value of £8.6m (negative total 2012: £16.7m). Together with the £28m purchase of a showroom and offices on Piccadilly [probably by a different legal entity?], this represents big investment in the UK.

    2) Rent from SMTC - £9.9m in 2010 - had fallen sharply to £2.2m in 2011 and only £1.5m in 2012. However 2013 service charge was £7.8m. Even if there had been a £2m figure in turnover in 2011 for service income, the £7.6m increase in this figure for 2013 goes a long way to explaining the £4.3m reduction in pre-tax loss. Although car and parts sales are up, sales to SAIC are down so that turnover only improved £1m, offset by a (doubtless volume-related?) £1.5m rise in the cost of sales and a humungously bodacious increase in admin costs, up 38% or £3.1m to £11.3m. (I wonder if advertising and promotion is included here?)

    3) The Directors' Report notes that "SAIC Motor Corporation is currently making investment in Thailand"- the funds and investment are not coming from MG Motor UK Ltd.

    No new staff taken on to build the MG3 - explains the difficulty keeping up with demand for the first few months.

    The MG6 must be proving very reliable if the sale of parts has only gone up 3%, with an extra year of MG6s coming out of warrantee they should be seeing a decent increase in profitable sales, I thought that was how car manufacturers made most of their profits?

    "Service income (SMTC) 7,788,000" - fantastic profit made by the cleaners for the SMTC office?!

    "The Directors' Report notes that "SAIC Motor Corporation is currently making investment in Thailand"" - why is that in the MG Motor UK directors report, or alternatively, how have they avoided the funds going through the accounts?

    Staff - I think they have chosen(?) not to disclose agency staff. I agree, you need a different scale of operations to handle 360 sales a month or 11... though these are the figures for last year...

    Cleaners - I can't understand how the taxman allows the rental income to fluctuate to the extent of finding wallets down the back of the 3D printer, one year Gordon Brown's, one year Bernie Ecclestone's...

    I am sure that from a management perspective, issues for RHD conversion are going to be shared with Thailand so there will be an International Division (RHD Assembly) crossing entities. From the R&A:

    "There will be a lot of synergy between the operations of these markets [UK and SE Asia] sharing the cost of vehicle development and brand promotion. As a result of this arrangement, SAIC Motor's commitment to the UK is stronger than ever"

    If the taxman was to take a real interest then it would be in the accounts of the company making the payments.

    I guess the Thai factory will appear in the next accounts, it didn't really get started until this year.[/quote]

    the rental income is not taxed as MG Motor is loss-making, but while tax accounts are not the same as statutory accounts in the UK, the payment will not normally stand unless Hector is happy...

    The Director's Report is full of Thailand, and if money were to be invested in it, MG Motor's own reserves are really insufficient. I don't understand the talk of how MG Motor is to make a profit in the short term (given it is a small piece in a global jigsaw) - it can't be by its own doing...

    And in 2015 a move to operating profit of £137k! (and a change of presentation) 2014's gross profit was about 1/5 of the rental income from SMTC while 2015's was about half. There's still some £10m+ of Group money going into MG Motor UK even though the sale of parts to SAIC and UK production have both ceased.
