The way I see it then is that they have found a way round it and they are breaking the spirit of the cap again, until the loophole is closed.

I don't think so. Loopholes have to be reported. I think it's more likely that these arrangements come under Schedule 1, Section 2, and would fall under things 'less likely to be considered salary'.

I expect they are already thinking of the next way to get round the cap...
 - pay off shore
 - pay in something like fine wines that are immediately sold for more than the cost to the player
 - find a way to treat all the players personal clothing as 'uniform' to be able buy them tax free
 - pay in cash and just don't tell anyone
