The company produces sausages and is now run by Hoeneß’s two children. It is not known whether Uli Hoeneß is still earning income from HoWe Wurstwaren KG today. However, this can be assumed, because Uli Hoeneß advertised publicly with the fast food company McDonals for the Nuremberg citizen, for whom the sausage was supplied by HoWe KG. In any case, he made millions himself. The CEO of FC Schalke 04 Clemens Tönnies is also a business customer away from the football field. The pig manufacturer supplies the HoWe sausage factory and is also good friends with the Hoeneß family.

At the beginning of 2013, the online magazine Stern revealed that Uli Hoeneß had an amount in the three-digit million range in a Swiss account at a private bank. Allegedly, up to 800 million Swiss francs were in this account at peak times. According to his own statements, Uli Hoeneß speculated on the stock market with this money and achieved massive success, so that such a high one assets has come together. After numerous media on the celebrities Tax evaders drew attention, Uli Hoeneß submitted a voluntary disclosure. In July 2013, the public prosecutor officially filed a complaint against the tax evader, which was approved the following November. Furthermore, after his arrest, he deposited millions of euros on bail. Since the documents of the Swiss bank were initially incomplete and had to be requested by the Bavarian President, it was not exactly clear what the final sum would be.

On the first day of the trial (March 10, 2014) Uli Hoeneß pleaded guilty and admitted to having evaded another 15 million euros. This made the voluntary disclosure ineffective. On the second day of the trial, the Bayern Munich president was charged even more than initially assumed by a commissioned tax investigator. Accordingly, he should actually have evaded 27.2 million euros in taxes and not 18.5 million as assumed on the first day.

On the fourth day of the negotiations, the court decided: Uli Hoeneß has to be behind bars for 3 years and 6 months. According to the judgment, the official tax liability is 28.5 million euros. The defense did not question this judgment and thus became final. At the beginning of 2016 it became known that Uli had transferred a total of 43 million euros to the state as a penalty (compensation). As President of FC Bayern Munich, he officially resigned on March 14, 2014. Karl Hopfner was elected as his successor on May 2nd, 2014 at the general meeting. In addition, Hoeneß announced that he wanted to return to the top of Bayern. In November 2016, the plan was put into action and Karl Hopfner was relieving the throne for the former new president.

He was therefore transferred to the Rothenfeld prison and works in the youth department at FC Bayern Munich. He donated all of his salary of just EUR 100 / month from the youth department.

Since June 2015 he has been allowed to sleep in his own bed for the weekend and is only a sleeping guest in the prison during the week. How does the sentence affect the Uli Hoeneß’s assets is initially unclear. But we will continue to report.
