David, Victoria and their business partner hand the Inland Revenue £22,000 a day
He, his wife Victoria and their business partner between them hand the Inland Revenue an astonishing £22,000 a day.
Accounts filed last month showed the couple’s global business empire raked in £47.1million in 2015 with profits of nearly £40million.
It meant the Treasury took a whopping £8million in tax over 12 months from their company Beckham Brand Holdings, equivalent to £153,000 a week.

Their firm employs more than 140 staff
The firm employs more than 140 staff who were paid a total of nearly £8million last year.
And couple do not stint themselves. The latest accounts lodged with Companies House show former England captain Beckham, 41, and his wife, 42, the former Posh Spice, each received £11million from their company – equivalent to more than £30,000 a day.
Beckham and Posh, who once revealed her pet name for husband is Golden Balls, have paid themselves the same amount for the past two tax years.
In 2014 the firm's profit was only £9.9million on £51.5million of revenue
But in 2014 the firm’s profit was only £9.9million on £51.5million of revenue.
The couple own two thirds of Beckham Brand Holdings while talent agent Simon Fuller, who used to manage Victoria’s group the Spice Girls, owns the other slice.
The business oversees Victoria’s fashion firm and DB Ventures, which rakes in money from “licensing and other forms of commercialisation of the ‘David Beckham’ brand”.
DB Ventures brought in almost £37million in 2015, through advertising deals with the likes of Breitling watches and Haig Club Whisky.
The couple have four children: Brooklyn, Romeo, Cruz and Harper
By contrast, Posh’s high-end clothing brand is making multimillion pound losses and is £21million in debt.
But friends pointed out that while Beckham makes money mainly out of his image, his wife employs most of the firm’s staff and needs cash as she is still establishing her start-up fashion business.
The couple married in 1999 and have four children, Brooklyn, 17, Romeo, 14, Cruz, 11 and their sister Harper, five.
