Transfer Tax

So the latest idea is to tax all PL clubs 10% of all their transfer purchases. This money will be distributed to the EFL.

In recent years that amount would’ve been roughly 160m a year.

Am I only the one who just found out transfers weren’t taxed?

I had always assumed if you bought something you pay a sales tax/duty/VAT on it?

Just like if you bought a player and then sold him for a profit you’d pay a capital gains tax on them or claim a loss credit if you did what United do better than most when it comes to selling for a loss?

Never thought about it to be honest. I read somewhere that clubs pay VAT for domestic transfers but not international or something like that.

Funny, I suggested essentially this idea over a decade ago.

It's not perfect but might help

The thing I find worse than the issues facing EFL clubs (which for me are often about a lack of spending regulation) are the issues facing the Sunday/Saturday league in England. It's expensive, overly violent and usually on terrible pitches.

Yes no one wants to see football clubs go out of business but equally the majority of people who play football in England are paying to play and usually for substandard and poorly managed game.

With the insane wealth of the Premier league the grassroots football facilities in England really stink

I've started watching the US version of the office. I think I prefer it.

I thought it was great. I didn't like the UK version as I dislike Gervais and his unfunny punchable face.

If you’re gonna watch the US version you have to watch the superfans episodes on peacock

They have the first 3 seasons and each episode includes all the deleted scenes. They’re like 42 min episodes.

Gives a lot of scenes completely different context

The US version of the office is superior, mostly because the other characters are more fleshed out and it’s not all about Brent.

Dwight is by far the funniest character on either version

OP. In the UK what you see is what you pay, all tax included.

In the US what you see is before tax, which is added on at the till
