Tax Fraud Investigation - Chelsea

Eton Blue at the Chelsea Megastore

Apparently we were 'visited', not 'raided' as Newcastle and West Ham were, by HMRC yesterday.

“In connection with its wider investigation HMRC has requested certain information which the club will provide".

Hopefully nothing major in it and we're just helping HMRC out.

Apparently the club is being questioned as part of the Tax Fraud investigation that saw Newcastle's MD arrested yesterday.

Along with us and Newcastle, West Ham have also been questioned. Interestingly enough the same investigation is going on in France & with Marseille. All three clubs have had dealings with Marseille in the last couple of years... 

Hopefully nothing to be overly concerned about.

I suspect that HMRC is looking for Chelsea's documentation regarding certain player signings to see if the values on our books match what other clubs have declared to the tax offices. 

The solution is to remove the provision for undisclosed transfer fees. Make it public knowledge so that the tax liability is publically known.

Well, this is awkward!
