The UK’s highest taxpayer was named as sportswear businessman Stephen Rubin, who paid 181.6 million pounds in tax in 2017-18 against a wealth estimate of 2,820 million pounds.
“The super-rich are often castigated for not paying their fair share of tax, for deploying all tax avoidance measures at their disposal, yet the top 1 per cent of earners are expected to yield 28 per cent of all income tax receipts for 2017-18,” the newspaper noted.
The Arora brothers, who built the business, own just under 15 per cent of it, where Simon is Chief Executive.
Known for its annual ‘Rich List’ of the UK’s wealthiest people, the newspaper released its first-ever list ranking top 50 tax contributions as the UK’s January 31 income tax return filing deadline nears.
