Fan Bingbing: Top Chinese actress fined for tax evasion

04 October, 2018, 01:22 | Author: Eleanor Thompson
  • Chinese actress Fan Bingbing vanished from public view since July- no more social media updates no more paparazzi

If Fan doesn't pay it back in time, tax authorities will transfer her case to public security officials for "handling", the news agency reported, without specifying what that would entail.

Fan would not be investigated for criminal responsibility for tax evasion as long as the taxes, fines and late fees amounting to almost 900 million yuan ($130 million) are paid on time, the report said.

As a first-time offender, she will not face criminal prosecution if she pays the fine by an undisclosed deadline.

In her first public statement since she went silent on Chinese social media on July 23, Fan Bingbing apologized for evading taxes and accepted full responsibility. For these violations, the Jiangsu Tax Bureau is fining Fan and her legal representative 880 million yuan.

But this has only just begun, despite not winning, we're still at the top of the table and that means the league is very equal. Some fans were carried away on stretchers, although local media said no serious injuries were immediately reported.

Her agent was detained for allegedly obstructing the investigation by ordering evidence destroyed and concealing accounting documents.

After admitting her guilt Fan would praise praise the Chinese communist party, "Without the favorable polices of the Communist Party and state, without the love of the people, there would have been no Fan Bingbing".

China's highest-earning actress has resurfaced from a three-month disappearance after agreeing to pay £100 million in unpaid taxes and fines.

Speaking ominously of "enormous fears and worries" she faces over the mistakes she made in the past, she laments that, "I failed my country which nurtured me; I failed the country which trusted me; I failed the fans who loved me".

He showed no signs of being caught up in the moment and seemed like an upgrade from Big Ten career touchdown leader, J.T. Penn State immediately lost 13 yards on a swing pass trying to set up a trick play.

The official secrecy around Fan and her sudden disappearance stirred speculation in Chinese tabloids that she was banned from acting or placed under house arrest. She admitted in the letter that she had split contracts to avoid paying tax, and promised to pay the back taxes and the fines, in accordance with the tax authorities' order. In a term that sound slightly racist, Cui accused Fan of using "ying-yang contracts" to lighten her tax burden. Update: Fan has also officially responded - see below. It's not clear who exactly owes the rest of the sum.

On Wednesday, the star posted an open apology on her Weibo account saying: "I've been suffering unprecedented pain recently..." I would like to apologise to the society, my beloved friends, and the country. She has since been relocated to Beijing.

Fan broke into the worldwide movie scene with her role in the 2014 "X-Men" movie.

Many companies she advertised for, including De Beers and Australian vitamin brand Swisse, have also suspended her image from their campaigns, according to the Associated Press.
