Almost all rich people and especially corporations do it, they rarely get any negative blowback from it. Would knowing normiebook paid fuck all tax last year stop you from using it? You probably have it open in a tab right now.
>>65079735 >Why would you commit fraud? Probably because he didn't know it was illegal. It's most likely that his accountant went to him and said 'Hey, I have this way to save you money on your taxes. And best of all it's completely legal.'
>>65079503 >Mascherano has also been fined €815,000. A further fine of around €21,000 likely to be issued as replacement for the prison sentence (SPORT) >A further fine of around €21,000 likely to be issued as replacement for the prison sentence >€21,000 as replacement for the prison sentence
Oh what a harsh punishment. Will he be able to save 2 days worth of working to pay that off?
>>65079861 no, jail sentences in Spain are not enforced if they are under 2 years and it is the first one, he accepted 1 year in jail because he won't have to go, and that way he doesn't risks getting anymore
in other news, Victor Valdés is going to Standard de Liege on loan. That poor bastard ruined his career. Apparently the cause he left is he was building himself a very expensive house in Gavà and had to leave because he needed more money. Apparently he is bankrupt now
>>65079735 They weren''t clearly aware they are commiting a fraud. This was a common issue in Spain since the laws weren't clear regarding image rights income (the reason this to sportists massively only in Spain in contrast to other euro countries). You have many such identical instances (Nadal, Casillas, Alonso etc) where the sports person is making huge amounts of money on image rights deals (commercials and such) so their financial advisors propose them to create offshore companies in tax havens (Madeira, Belize etc), do these image rights deals from there and pay tax in there. Their reasoning was: why would you pay 40+% of tax on image rights income in Spain when you can pay 5-10% elsewhere? They didn't thought they were committing a fraud, they didn't hide income, they just reported it elsewhere. After few years, Spanish tax authorities pursue them because to them image rights deals should be taxed in Spain since players are residents there or whatever.
>>65080044 But this particular issue (image rights income) happens massively only among players in Spain (Nadal, Alonso, Casillas, Mascherano, Messi etc all had this IDENTICAL issue). Because of unclear national laws on image rights, they reported their income in other places.
>>65080175 >It sounds like players are knowingly attempting to illegally circumvent something and are taking the risks. They aren't doing this fully knowing it is illegal. The national laws regarding the issue weren't clear, that's why these issues so frequently happened ONLY in Spain.
>Do you think these people don't have accountants that don't explicitly give them options and recommendations? Do you think these players are completely oblivious to this sort of stuff? Accountants/financial advisors presented them that option. They don't know laws m8 and big money is in play, they are listening what is being proposed to them. I believe they were warned of the risk that Spanish tax authority could consider it as a fraud and advised to deposit money immediately if they charged them. That's what all of them did, literally deposited sum+interest first thing morning after they charged them.
Just look chronologically, tax evasions for all mentioned players happened almost at the same time period. No one will try to do this trick now after these charges made it clear how Spain will treat it, but at that time they weren't so sure because of unclear laws.
