Direct Line Group makes a substantial tax contribution to the UK economy. The Group's tax contribution is not limited to the UK corporation tax that Direct Line Group pays on its profits – we pay a number of different taxes and levies at various stages in our supply chain and in respect of our people and property footprint. Direct Line Group’s tax contribution is used to fund public spending on key services such as the NHS, education and the welfare system. This diagram shows some of the ways in which we contribute to HM Treasury and ultimately to public spending in the UK.
