Stolen British supercars shipped to Thailand in tax scam

Recommended Posts

At least 38 vehicles were taken from the UK in the scheme, which sought to bypass import taxes of more than 300%.

 

More than 120 supercars were seized as authorities dismantled an elaborate tax avoidance scam in Britain and Thailand.

Dozens of luxury vehicles including Lamborghinis, Porsches and BMWs were stolen from British streets as part of the scam.

It used a range of complex methods to bypass the hefty taxes levied on supercars imported into Thailand, which usually stand at around 328%.

One tactic for avoiding the taxes involved dismantling cars, shipping them from the UK in parts and reassembling them in Thailand.

my boss's Merc was stolen at his Hong Kong office and probably sent to China to be re-birthed.  He wasn't upset about the car as it was covered by insurance.  He was upset losing his golf clubs which were in the boot.
