UK: Andrew Tate and His Brother Facing Civil Tax Evasion Claim Over OnlyFans Revenue

Didn’t Andrew Tate brag about this at one point?

Anyway – they live in Romania, why do they have to pay British taxes?

The Guardian:

Andrew Tate and his brother, Tristan, have been accused of failing to pay tax on £21m of revenue from their online businesses.

Devon and Cornwall police are bringing a civil claim against the brothers and a third person, a woman referred to as J, over unpaid tax, Westminster magistrates court heard on Monday. The force is seeking about £2.8m in seven frozen bank accounts.

Sarah Clarke KC for Devon and Cornwall police said: “Andrew Tate and Tristan Tate are serial tax and VAT evaders. They, in particular Andrew Tate, are brazen about it.”

It is claimed that they paid no tax in any country on £21m revenue from businesses online earned between 2014 and 2022. Clarke quoted from a video posted online by Andrew Tate, in which the self-proclaimed misogynistic social media influencer said: “When I lived in England I refused to pay tax.”

The court heard he said his approach was “ignore, ignore, ignore because in the end they go away”. The court also heard that the brothers had a “huge number of bank accounts” in the UK, seven of which have been frozen.

Clarke said that money “washed around UK bank accounts”, that were used as a “mechanism for moving revenues from their business activities through a wide number of accounts”.

“That’s what tax evasion looks like, that’s what money laundering looks like,” she told the court.

The money came from products they sold online as well as their OnlyFans sites, the court was told.

I guess the argument is that they were selling OnlyFans subs in the UK, so they owe the UK money.

However, we all know that the real reason the Tates are being persecuted is because they taught 12-year-old boys that the way out of the Matrix is to buy a Bugatti and have sex with high-end prostitutes.

Eisenhower tried to warn us about this.
