Tax dodgers are costing the UK nearly £200 per household – a total of £5.2billion every year, according to a report.
The unpaid taxes would be enough to provide £21 a week to every household in fuel poverty or double the amount of universal childcare entitlement to 25 hours per week, the study from Oxfam said.
The figure only covers tax evasion by individuals. If the amount of tax lost by the public purse through tax avoidance and illegal invasion by individuals and companies is added together, the figure is more like £32billion a year.
Ritchie normally claims something more like £120 billion for avoidance and evasion put together.
Obviously Oxfam are terribly off message here.
