SIR PHILIP FALLS FROM TOP 50 TAXPAYERS

- By

SIR Philip Green dropped out of the top 50 list of British taxpayers yesterday in the latest indication that his financial clout is fading.

The controvers­ial 68-year-old and wife Lady Tina plunged from the tax rankings after making 23rd place last year with a liability of £44million.

Sir Philip saw his personal wealth drop £20million to £930million last year, it was said.

The tax list was topped by Denise Coates, the 53-yearold chief executive of online betting giant Bet365.

Along with her family, the Staffordsh­ire-based executive is worth £7.12billion and handed the taxman £573million.

Fred and Peter Done were next with a tax bill of £191million.

The list, covering the period up to the end of 2019, shows how tax revenues paid by the super-rich were falling even before the pandemic.

Author JK Rowling slipped four places to 23rd, with tax liabilitie­s down from £48million to £34million.
