What's This?

In Salzburg in Austria, a business owner offers free drinks and sex at his brothel as a move to convince the tax authorities to equally go after his competitors who do not hold licenses to do business, according to the news.


At the face of brothel Pascha’s web site is a sign that reads: “Free Entrance! Free Drinks! Free Sex!” The giveaways are to take effect immediately.

The initiative was to evade taxes as can be gleaned from a preceding statement that says: “We are not paying any more tax!”

Of course, not any minute longer than Punters begun to queue “round the block” to take advantage of the freebies and the local news said the deal “spread like wildfire” as Hermannn ‘Pascha’ Müller, owner of the brothel and known to be the Salzburg’s “red light district king,” added “he had to turn away hundreds of disappointed customers since the ‘summer special’ was introduced.” He referred to the fact that since the announcement, his establishment has always been a “full house.”

Müller, born in Germany, planned to carry on the trick for a maximum of eight weeks.

News further said that Müller has been diligent in paying his taxes from his own earnings and has estimated to have paid his taxes around €5 million in the last 10 years. It was also reported that he pays for his own drinks as well as of his “worker’s normal hourly rate from his own pocket” since the freebies announcement.

Salzburg’s bordello king told Kronen Zeitung that tax officials have been “overzealous” in monitoring Müller as the officials pay his brothel a visit every two weeks without lapses but fail in doing the same thing to his rivals who engage in illegal prostitution.

“The problem is, the tax office wants more and more, and they are not cracking down on illegal street and apartment prostitution. They allow me no room for manoever,” the brothel owner was quoted as saying by the Local.

According to the Telegraph, in Austria and Germany, prostitution is a legal undertaking and brothels do business legitimately and are taxable.
