It seems Jeremy Corbyn employed an accountancy firm to fill out his tax return for him.

So all should be well – unless, of course, the firm he employed was PricewaterhouseCoopers!

An aide for Corbyn was unable to explain the omission and agreed that it did not look quite right. The issue would be raised with the accountant who worked on the tax returns, he said.

“This year, for the first time, Jeremy appointed a firm of accountants to do his tax. The accountants were provided with all the relevant information,” said the aide. “We are confident that the overall ‘tax paid’ figure was right.”

The aide went on to confirm that Corbyn had been paid for both his MP and leader roles and that this was not a case of tax not being paid because “the tax was deducted at source” for both salaries.
