Country Snapshot

Welcome to the 2021 Barclays Country Snapshot.

Tax transparency remains high on our agenda and continues to be an important issue for our stakeholders. In line with our commitment to tax transparency, we have published our Country Snapshot annually since 2013. This report contains an overview of our global tax contribution as well as our approach to tax including our UK tax strategy, together with our country by country data.

We continue to make substantial tax payments across the countries in which we operate and, in 2021, our global tax contribution was £5,792m. This includes taxes paid of £2,781m, which represent a cost to us, and taxes collected on behalf of governments of £3,011m.

We were ranked as the fourth largest UK taxpayer, in terms of taxes paid, in the most recent PwC Total Tax Contribution survey of the One Hundred Group (100 Group). The 100 Group represents members of the FTSE 100 along with several large UK private companies. Over the last decade, we have consistently been ranked as one of the top five largest UK taxpayers, paying over £14bn of taxes in the UK.
