“Richard Enthoven is the ultimate beneficial owner of Nando’s,” the company’s spokesman told us. “He is not resident in the US or the UK.” This means that he is not liable to pay any British personal tax.
Non-Englishman does not pay English tax shocker!
Jeez, they really are scraping the barrel here, aren’t they?
The company added: “Nando’s is a concept founded in South Africa. Nando’s in the UK is one of 22 national franchises operating globally. All the franchises operate under standard market licensing arrangements and this includes the brand licensing fee. This franchising arrangement enables the UK company to access expertise, intellectual property and capital from the company’s global operations and has helped fund its growth.”
Be interesting to see what fee The Guardian is charging Guardian US and Guardian Oz for the brand, wouldn’t it?
