Dolce & Gabana convicted of tax evasion

Italian fashion designers Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana have been sentenced to jail in Italy for one year and eight months for tax evasion. Dolce and Gabbana have not commented on their sentences, which have been suspended pending their appeal. They were also slapped with a suspended fine of 500,000 owed to Italy's national tax agency.

Re: Dolce & Gabana convicted of tax evasion

Yes they do look to be greedy! The D&G products are not exactly cheap either. It is really shameful behaviour, especially as the Italian population is struggling to pay for the German financed bale out.

The fashion designers Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana were given a suspended prison sentence of a year and eight months on Wednesday for what prosecutors claimed was a sophisticated system of evading tax on income of around 1bn (850m).
A court in Milan ruled that the pair had sold their world-famous brands to a Luxembourg-based holding company in 2004 to avoid declaring tax on royalties. They were also slapped with a suspended fine of 500,000 owed to Italy's national tax agency.

Good going for Italy. Looks like they are finding ways of raising money. Feel sad though for all Swiss Drivers who had to pay fines for not advertising 'CH' stickers on their cars.
