Swedish football star, Zlatan Ibrahimovic caught in the French tax squabble and forced to pay 75 percent in taxes

Wednesday, 03 April 2013

For those with revenue over Skr9 million or a Million euro such as Swedish football star,  Zlatan Ibrahimovic and other super-rich footballers in the French league will not escape the French high tax rules.

The hope for the French football clubs has been that they would not be included in the new tax rules, which small and medium enterprises would escape. But that has not been the case.

On Tuesday, the government announced that the tax of 75 percent will be levied on incomes over a million euros, that is almost nine million Swedish Krona, regardless of employer.

"The new system will apply to all businesses that pay the salaries of a million euros," said the spokesman for the French Prime Minister, Jean-Marc Aurault.

PSG's superstar Zlatan Ibrahimovic, 31, is currently the French league's highest paid player with an annual salary of € 15 million, (Skr 125 million).

David Beckham's transfer to the club means that he will take over the title with an income of Skr300 million per year according to reports.
