The well known fashion designers Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana have been accused of tax evasion. Find out how this happened and what sum the two designers are accused of having evaded!
It seems that the two most popular fashion designers in the fashion industry Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana are having some trouble with the law as they have been accused of tax evasion. The charges have been confirmed Milan prosecutor Laura Pedio.
Dolce and Gabbana have yet to make a decision on what they will do regarding these charges. They will have to think well and either go to trial to prove their innocence or pay the fines and taxes which have added up to the present. There has not been an official declaration regarding what path he two designers will take but it seems that so far Stefano Gabbana and Domenico Dolce have denied the accusations so things are a bit unclear.
It is well known that taxes need to paid on time and there are taxes for everything. Not paying these taxes can lead to serious problems as tax evasion is prosecuted and can lead to jail time. Hopefully this will not happen to our favorite fashion designers Dolce and Gabbana.
In 2009 the two fashion designers issued statements saying that they are not guilty of tax evasion, tax evasion accusations which were related to the sale of the well known brands Dolce & Gabbana and D&G in 2004. The designer duo stated then that “the accusation are based on a completely abstract calculation” which allows the authorities to calculate the debt towards the state with a hypothetical value.
Well this will probably have to be proven by a financial expert and the sum which Dolce and Gabbana have to pay adds up to about one billion dollars. Now that is a big sum to pay!
We are absolutely sure that everything will be solved and hopefully the two designers will be cleared of any accusations.
