It is a VERY busy day in UK politics, a Brexit vote, Johnson’s partygate inquiry.
So would today be a good day to sneak out your tax return you have been promising for a LONG time.
There was speculation that his tax return could be controversial given that it was scheduled to be released at 4pm while the privileges committee investigation into whether Boris Johnson misled MPs over partygate was very much still in session.
His long-awaited personal UK tax returns covering the past four years, showing that he paid £432,493 in tax in the 2021-22 financial year.
Pippa Crerar tweeted: “Details here of Rishi Sunak’s tax return
“Last year the PM’s income from dividends was £172k and from capital gains was £1.6m.
“If we didn’t know already, this shows that he is a very wealthy man.”
Is it a full return though?
Recently it was revealed that his wife, Akshata Murthy, had claimed non-dom status – allowing her to avoid UK tax on her vast foreign income, derived from her father’s Idian firm, Infosys.
