Britain’s biggest 100 businesses collected and paid £82.3bn in taxes this year, up from £80.5bn in 2015 and the highest level ever.
The firms paid £23.7bn directly, according to figures from PwC, and collected £58.6bn in the form of charges such as PAYE income tax and VAT.
The so called “direct” taxes are not incident upon the firms either. All taxes lead to the wallets of some live human beings getting picked. Simply because there’s only us humans here to pay taxes.
Just as Ritchie continues his illiterate screeds about how “companies” should pay MOAR TAX we must continue to point out that those direct taxes are incident upon investors and workers, not the company.
