Chelsea's N’Golo Kante will pay more tax than Amazon

Chelsea's N’Golo Kante will pay more tax than Amazon

The star Chelsea midfielder recently put pen to paper on a £15m deal that will see him pay £564,000 a month in income tax.

Chelsea star N’Golo Kante has signed a new £15million-a-year deal which will see him pay more tax than Amazon, it was reported last night.

Kante, 27, snubbed a scheme to get his wages paid through tax saving offshore firms, it was recently revealed in Der Spiegel's Football Leaks series.

The new deal means the French midfielder will pay £6.7million tax, more than Amazon paid last year.

The revelation shames Amazon which uses loopholes to pay the minimum.

The online giant stumped up £1.7million on £79million profits last year.

Kante could have opted to have 20 per cent of his wages covering image rights paid into a Jersey tax haven.

But he is reported to have refused and insisted everything was above board.

It is alleged that an offshore company was set up for Kante to pay his image rights into.

This tax haven would, it has been claimed, save him around £870,000 a year on his salary.

But it emerged that Kante refused to be part of the scheme.

Chelsea’s highest-paid player will now shell out £564,000 a month in income tax. He will also pay £305,000 in National Insurance annually.

According to a leaked email, his adviser told Chelsea that the World Cup winner was worried about the use of offshore firms proposed to him.

Amazon cut their 2017-18 tax bill by paying shareholder dividends.
