HC Deb 10 April 1975 vol 889 cc471-2W
Mr. Wigley

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what was the amount of corporation tax collected from companies located in each county of Wales and in Wales as a whole for the last available year.

Dr. Gilbert

Corporation tax is assessed on a company at the address of its registered office, which may not be its head office or main place of business. The figures below do not, therefore, necessarily reflect tax yields on the income of all companies from operations either in Wales as a whole or in individual counties. On this basis corporation tax collected in counties in Wales in 1973–74 was:

CT(£ million)
Clwyd 1.9
Dyfed 1.2
Mid Glam 2.3
South Glam 8.1
West Glam 3.4
Gwent 3.4
Gwynedd 0.5
Wales 20.8

The figure for Clwyd may include a small amount of tax due from companies whose registered offices are not in Wales.
