Zac Goldsmith

On Newsnight last night, Tory London Mayoral Candidate Zac Goldsmith faced questions about his complicated tax affairs.

“Being non-dom allows you to make lifestyle choices and avoid paying tax,” says Goldsmith, but then carefully says: “I have an income that comes to the UK, on which I’ve always paid full tax.”

The prospective Mayoral candidate admitted in 2009 to being a non-dom, but surrendered that status the following year.

On Newsnight last night he said his father’s wealth was held offshore in a trust in Geneva.


At least Goldsmith finally agreed to publish his tax returns

Update: We asked Zac a few questions over Twitter but he hasn’t responded yet

  1. Question for Zac, How much money have you donated to the Conservative Party to become their candidate for the mayoral contest ?? There are many members of that party who have far greater political experience, and do you honestly believe that you are their best candidate ??
