I love how the representative of the HMRC tries to twist the facts and uses the "These bilionaire athletes..." card

Like it's natural to be taxed in UK for incomes that have nothing to do with it

I also liked the part about claiming tax credits in their own countries.

I wonder how this works for musicians. Are their earnings on music sold and produced in another country taxed if they perform in the U.K.?

I guess the idea is that the athletes are advertising the sponsors' products in the UK, so that portion of their sponsors’ payments should be taxed in the U.K.

The problem is that the taxes then can amount to more than what the athlete is being paid in the U.K. so there’s a disincentive to perform there. I don’t’ understand why that point is missed by the tax authorities.

There are many things I don't understand, Star.

Nalbandian won the first set 7-6 (0) after Haas was leading 5-2.
And now this lost his own serve after leading already 2-0 in the 2nd. But seems like Tommy is keen to give the break back again.

Can't believe how lame these excuses are.




star, FYI I was not jaunting around the Olympics with the other royals. Obviously I was invited but I politely declined. Most boring set of people ever! I was occupied with vastly more exciting things. I am not going to say what those were since you all don't care anyway.

I am disappointed in you Maria. I am even starting to question your Nalby () fandom. star hadn't even asked you to remove the (). And did you even get any thanks from her for doing it? No. It was all for nothing.

Yes it was that hot. There was one particular week when temperatures were over 40C. But it's mostly the prolonged exposure to high temperatures (37-38C) before that that made it even more unbearable.

Re: Rafachat - vol. 79. Worst Olympics ever - onto USO :rocker2:

I think I'd rather give the 40 euros for the 80 year old Caballe than go to lady Gaga's concert.

Re: Rafachat - vol. 79. Worst Olympics ever - onto USO :rocker2:

Metis, I dunno how this over +40 C in Athens feels like, here in this moisture anything over +25 C is tough. Luckily we have +19/20 C now I SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO wish we'd have it all year round. Yeah keep on dreaming.
LOL they are finally putting electrical heating covers (insulation, whatever they're called) on our water pipes in our house so they won't freeze next winter. We'll see.

I'm not. And the tickets here are more like 60 euros.
