Top Premiership footballers like Wayne Rooney and Gareth Barry are avoiding millions of pounds in tax - and it's all legal.
Er...well yes, avoiding tax is legal, who woulda thunk that?
Interestingly the article then goes on to say:
Scores of top footballers launched their own companies eligible to take image rights payments after Labour Chancellor announced the 50p top rate tax...[image rights] royalties are paid into a company which is only liable for 28 per cent corporation tax rather than the 50 per cent income tax.
So by raising the higher rate of tax on the rich, tax avoidance schemes are implemented which reduces the overall tax take. Not only proof that Labour are intrinsically economically illiterate but that each generation has to learn the whole Laffer curve lesson all over again.
