Although it seems to be that Lloyd is wealthier than he is letting on.
Lloyd’s basically running a “ma and pop” outfit if I am reading this correctly. Nothing really special here, the business is just a vehicle for funnelling money to three parties, Lloyd, and to a lesser extent, Dijana and Tibor.
The company has physical assets such as their equipment and liquid assets, such as the €8200 they had in their bank account. That was essentially their surplus/profit, and the loss was claimed in order to not have to pay any of the profit toward taxes.
The company pays their income taxes, pensions and whatever else the Croatian government requires and distributes a net payment to the three employees. He can’t just give everyone cash and call it a day. They would also have to file personal tax forms and pay any deficiency or be refunded for overpayment.
Lloyd also has another company in the UK for his book publishing. Not anything as big as Ipsilon but it’s another source.
