Toby ,
I did miss a few (tax) and they caught me ;) RB gets away with is so I guess I'm just jealous :oops:
As did he , his original record business was based on selling records marked for export , hence avoiding sales tax, His mum had to bail him out and settle with HMRC ! (HMRC is the UK Tax authority)

My main point is, i'm sure loads of us here have done fun silly things like getting lots of people on a board, but It's not news unless you're RB :)

I didn't realize how much he paid for that island mind. When he bought it he paid 180,000 GBP quite a bargain even in 1978 !

And you know , I don't think I would like his life, I think he works pretty hard and cant really call anywhere home now as he now a tax exile.

If you can afford not to, why would you pay tax? I think that's called working smarter, not harder...

We're tax exiles too, by the way. It ain't that bad ;)

I am sure he travels a lot and caing something home is not easy.
Sure tax office wants it all, heard some crazy stories from the Germans...they are just insane...so anyone avoiding paying taxes is just smart. If they succeed ;-)

And calling Neckar Island your home, which is a beautiful kite spot, is a very cool thing! ;-)

Lucky him !

And making this a record is cool for the sport, no?
No one else did it or had the idea, right?

I'm sure no guy has ever thought about having a harem of young girls wrapping their legs around him... :lol:
