“Controversial social media personality Andrew Tate and his brother Tristan have been accused of failing to pay any tax on £21m of revenue from their online businesses. Devon and Cornwall Police is bringing a civil claim against the brothers and a third person, referred to only as J. They are accused of paying no tax in any country on their online business revenue between 2014 and 2022.
The force is seeking to recover around £2.8 million in seven frozen bank accounts, an application the three defendants are contesting. ‘Andrew Tate and Tristan Tate are serial tax and VAT evaders,’ Sarah Clarke KC for Devon and Cornwall Police told Westminster Magistrates’ Court on Monday. ‘They, in particular Andrew Tate, are brazen about it.’ Ms Clarke quoted from a video posted online by Andrew Tate, in which he said: ‘When I lived in England I refused to pay tax.'” (07/08/24)
