Vanja Bosnic & her husband were accused of violating Spanish tax laws
When Mamic was convicted of taking funds from Dinamo Zagreb, Luka Modric was called upon to testify. The footballer’s statement created such a stir, as per Total Croatia News, since he did not recall how much he originally received upon signing his first contract with Mamic.
The legal issues of Modric extended through 2018 when both he and Vanja Bosnic were summoned to testify before the Spanish court when the Spanish State Attorney's Office claimed that the tax administration regulations were manipulated by the couple. The fraud reportedly began when Modric and Bosnic set up a business in Luxembourg that, when it comes time to pay taxes, is far outside Spain's jurisdiction.
After their first son, Modric and Vanja called their company Ivano SARL and Bosnic negotiated a deal with this company that enables her husband to work with brands such as Nivea and Nike without having to legally worry about Spanish taxes. The couple must pay 30 percent of their business profits in Spain, but they just need to pay 1 percent in Luxembourg.
"Although the business is well known, leaving Luka Modric's rights to Vanja Bosnic is a simulation," says 24 Sata. "The sole purpose of transferring the right to a corporation is to pay the money in order to stop paying taxes in Spain."
