Cristiano Ronaldo has fulfilled tax obligations, claims Tax body

Notwithstanding what has recently been published, the Spanish tax government agency considers Cristiano Ronaldo up to date with his fiscal obligations.

The EIC [European Investigative Collaborations] published information asserting high profile players such as Ronaldo or Mesut Ozil would have used societies based in tax havens in order to avoid paying vast sums in Spain.

In response, Gestifute, Jorge Mendes’ management company, released on Saturday a certificate originally issued by the Spanish entity that clears the Portuguese from tax fraud accusations.

“The State Agency of Tax Administration certifies that the aforementioned solicitor [Ronaldo] is up to date with his fiscal obligations according to article 74.1 of the General Regulations approved on July 27, 2007,” says the document.

The statement remarks its 12-month validity from November 30, 2016, the date when it was issued, barring changes in specific regulations.

“This certificate has been issued with the exclusive purpose listed above, not generating any rights or expectation of rights for the solicitor nor for a third party.”
