The figure includes corporation tax, national insurance, VAT, income tax paid by employers on behalf of employees and the effect of the one-off bonus tax last year, which accounted for $465m (£290m) of the cost.The tax bill suggests pay of £382,000 per head for its 6,000 London-based staff – far more than its 2010 average pay per global employee of £286,000. However, Goldman partners reduced their donations to charity in 2010, giving $320m (£200m) globally versus $500m (£312m) in 2009.The revelation of the bank’s rising tax costs will raise further worries that the UK risks pricing itself out of the financial services market with increasingly punitive charges for banks that want to do business here.Conservative MEP for London Syed Kamall said: “While it is tempting for politicians to ask banks to pay higher taxes after some were bailed out with taxpayers money, we need to think through the consequences of tinkering with taxation too much.” Goldman’s UK tax bill tops £2bn KCS-content center_img Share Show Comments ▼ whatsapp Read This Next’A Quiet Place Part II’ Sets Pandemic Record in Debut WeekendFamily ProofHiking Gadgets: Amazon Deals Perfect For Your Next AdventureFamily ProofYoga for Beginners: 3 Different Types of Yoga You Should TryFamily ProofAmazon roars for MGM’s lion, paying $8.45 billion for studio behind JamesFamily ProofIndian Spiced Vegetable Nuggets: Recipes Worth CookingFamily ProofBack on the Rails for Summer New York to New Orleans, Savannah and MiamiFamily ProofThe Truth About Bottled Water – Get the Facts on Drinking Bottled WaterGayotChicken Bao: Delicious Recipes Worth CookingFamily ProofCheese Crostini: Delicious Recipes Worth CookingFamily Proof Tags: NULLlast_img read more
