Ecommerce giant Amazon paid a total of £781m in direct UK taxes last year as it continued to scale the business across the country.
That was a jump of £130m in taxes as Amazon’s UK workforce stood at 75,000, with more than 100 warehouses and offices and rising revenues.
Amazon saw a rise in business as ecommerce reached new heights during the pandemic and demand for online deliveries increased, resulting in a jump in revenues to a new record of £24bn – up £1bn year on year.
