Burnley based double glazing advertisement man for Safestyle UK, Jeff Brown has been ordered to pay over £53k having failed to submit tax returns since 2009.
Brown, famous for his BOGOF catchphrase on the window adverts, “Buy one you get one free, I said, you buy one you get one free” reportedly earned over £350k for this work and match day room host for Burnley and Accrington Stanley.
The judge at Burnley Crown Court warned Brown that failure to pay the sum within the next 3 months would see him spend 12 months inside. Seems much of his life he has worked in the cash economy because when the police inspected his house, bundles of notes were found.
