Despite Doing Nothing In 2016, Ed Sheeran Made A Shitload Of Cash
Today, Ed Sheeran announced his triumphant return to music after a year absence.
We don't know exactly what he's been up to over the last year, but what we do know is that he's been raking in cash like nobody's business. Unlike me and you, he doesn't have to go to an office or a place of work every day to keep food on the table.
According to The Sun, he made a sweet £8,845,000 after closing his company - Nathan Cable Limited.
Apparently, he's probably going to get another £311,000 when HMRC gives him a VAT tax refund. Pocket change, really.
Back in October, he filed accounts for his company Ed Sheeran Limited. These revealed that he had a turnover of £15 million and had profits of £11 million, paying himself a dividend of £5.2 million.
He's come a long way since 2013 when he made a measly (please sense the sarcasm) £3.6 million.
The thing is, he revealed a while back that he limits himself to £1,000 a month which 'mainly goes on taxis' because if he had it all in one account he'd 'spend it all'. I feel him.
