Re: Charnley Arrested

If a player wants x amount after tax, it's cheaper for the club to do this than pay them more basic salary. Plus, employers make a % contribution to NI. But I can't imagine the club would be stupid enough to do that? Surely SOMEBODY at the club would know it's a bad idea and they'd likely get caugh...

Re: Charnley Arrested

Why would there be a points deduction for £5m in unpaid taxes assuming we settle the amount owed? Should I be more worried about this? So far what i understand is the allegation is that as part of the fees for players, clubs have paid x amount for image rights, players and agents then don't get tax...

Re: Mirror: Rafa want 7 players and 100 millions

From what I've read, Boston was under-reporting salaries to players, and Swindon staff were charged with ""intent to defraud Inland Revenue by making payments without deducting tax or NI" Sounds pretty similar to me <erk> That does sound similar. <erk> Though this appears to be one o...

Re: Mirror: Rafa want 7 players and 100 millions

Yes we can. It has happened before and it can happen again. Swindon, Chesterfield and Boston were all punished in football matters for matters relating to tax evasion. I believe those were tax evasion by the club itself (i.e. Corporation Tax) rather than income tax and national insurance fraud. I'm...

Re: Mirror: Rafa want 7 players and 100 millions

We'll see what comes out about it. If the club's rotten, a transfer embargo would be lighter punishment than I would expect tbh. Good grief... We can't get a transfer embargo (or points deduction etc) as it isn't a footballing matter. Nothing to do with the FA, FIFA etc. Worst that can happen is a ...

To avoid punishment, they lured staff they had hired illegally in for a "meeting" which turned out to be a Border Agency sting <disgrace>.
