Well, she signed the contract with the Spice Girls brand again in 2007. I don't know how these things work, but it could be that they agreed to give Geri the royalties she didn't get from 1999 to 2007 as if she had never left. I don't think they could just not give her the money in 1998 because they were angry, that would still be illegal.

They probably owned her money for using Eugenia Lavender to advertise and sell the tour book.

Interesting documents. Every girl has her own company in 1997 and Mel C's was called Red Girl Productions :grin: and Geri resigned from Spice Girls Limited on 30.11.1999. I wonder if Goodbye and the other 1998-1999 projects were published by another company.

Good find! Looking at quite a few of those reports, it states on all of them that they don't have to disclose everything because all of their companies (individual and SG ones) are considered to be "small". They don't have to disclose "cash flow" so I suppose that covers the money they make (eg.money made from ROTSG) :shrug:.

It's a government website. In the UK, all limited companies' annual financial statements and returns are public records.


I know it's 100% legal but I still find it useless and disrespectful. It's interesting from a fan's point of view, but let's be honest: almost everything about the Girls would be interesting for us fans!

I saw on Victoria's tax history that her parents were terminated as co-directors of her company in 2013. I never realized they were part of Moody all of that time honestly. I also saw that it wasn't until her fillings in 2014 that she officially labeled herself as "Fashion Designer", being labeled as a "Musician" every year up until then. Its interesting to me how she didn't change that until 10 year after her quitting her music career. Do you get put in different tax brackets for different occupations like that in the UK? I'm not too familiar with their tax laws over there, to be honest.

I guess it is like that in most parts of the world. It is in France at least, or it was because I'm not 100% updated in terms of French taxes.

Why is it disrespectful? Their finances are a part of the tax that makes up for the wealthfare that you enjoy.

It's a quite private matter: if you have a company, would you like to have all your details online?

This is a way to stop companies from hiding away assets, money, avoid paying taxes, etc... Just like the regular worker's tax return is a matter of public record, so is a company's yearly financial report. There's no difference there.

If you play according to rules, regulations and law there really shouldn't be a problem. Only people who try to scheme money worry about their financial information being kept away from the public (the current US president, mr Twitler's tax return anyone?).
