Liaoning Whowin owes RMB 220 million in taxes

The Liaoning Whowin Football Club owes more than 220 million yuan to the Shen Yang Local Taxation Bureau of Liaoning Province, according to a recent official statement.

As shown in the statement, 201 taxpayers including Liaoning Whowin have “failed to pay their taxes due within the prescribed time limit.”

The professional football club lost 1-3 to its rival Shandong Luneng in the 28th round of the 2017-18 Chinese Super League (CSL) recently. This result means that Liaoning Whowin must face its relegation fate ahead of schedule.

According to Netease Sports, it is still unknown why Liaoning has so much unpaid taxes. They should be “at a profitable level” since the club sold their first-choice players including Zhang Lu, Yang Shanping and Sun Shilin in recent years. Meanwhile, the club has also received an 88-million-yuan investment from the second-hand car seller Kaixin Group for this season. 

Liaoning Whowin has not given any comment as of now.
