Strictly Amazon

The build up to this year's Strictly Come Dancing has begun as the names of the first contestants have been disclosed.

However as thoughts begin to turn to all things sequins, revealing outfits and fancy footwork, another disclosure hit the headlines this week as Amazon revealed that their UK Corporate Tax bill fell by £2.8 million last year despite the company seeing pre-tax profits nearly treble. Amazon UK Services Ltd accounts show their UK tax bill came in at £4.6 million last year, down from £7.4 million a year earlier. Yet according to figures filed to Companies House pre-tax profits jumped to £72.4 million from £24.3 million in 2016.

So Amazon will be waltzing their way to the bank whilst the rest of us look forward to watching the fancy footwork when the new series of Strictly airs in the Autumn.
