Default Richard moved to Switzerland?

It says so on his ATP profile...

http://www.atptennis.com/en/players/...uet%2C+Richard

It has something to do with the taxes in France? I don't know how that works. Did he buy a house or something in Switzerland?

If I'm not wrong, he bought a house in Switzerland but still mainly lives in Paris.

how sneaky I don't get why the French govt. doesn't just reform their tax laws instead of making all of their athletes buy houses in Switzerland or Florida...

Because it brings lots of money and the Socialists would hit the streets....
Sarko want to diminishe the ISF (Impôt sur la Fortune) so that it doesn't exceed 50% of your earnings and Copé wants to diminish it so that it doesn't exceed 60% of them...
It will change soon maybe. There are other reforms too but well...I don't follow this well at all. It's something like that.
He doesn't mainly lives in Paris. Like the other he can't live more than 6 months a year in France or he'll have problem with the FISC and have to pay the French taxes...
His new house is in Neuchâtel next to Forget's one. There are lot of other French tennis player in Swizerland (and of French ppl too) so he won't be so homesick and he'll play with the fringe of the rules like the other moving there because of money...

I thought someone said that he mentioned before that he still has dinner with his parents.

Anyway, he can't stay at one place for long. He has to keep travelling.

60% That is a lot of money to pay in tax...no wonder he moved out! And who wouldn't want to live next to Guy Forget?

That was when he entered the Pôle Espoir in Paris in 2002 and left Sérignan.
It's over since a long time. Parents in Paris/Sérignan, him in Neuchâtel/Paris.
Yep. Like for Clément and the others that's just a "tax justifying house" if you know what i mean...(and if that means something in English... ). His whole life is about travelling all the time.

Oh. I don't think the poster mentioned that it was a long time ago.

I would do that too if I were them.

Also the french rich like richie (a premonitory first name ) don't go to Monaco because the french citizen have to pay taxes in this fiscal paradise...

I think it's not only in France, many sport people "live" somewhere else because of taxes. But it doesn't mean they have to live there.

it's not just the french that have the problem and not just tennis players alot of people have to do it! half the actors and actresses have homes in other countries coz of taxes.

even mohammed al fayed (harrods owner and also fulham chairman) has to spend a certain amount of time each year out of the country to save himself millions of £££'s in taxes.
if i recall accurately even the spice girls had to do it. It sucks really!
