Sunak tax return – Media speculate: prime minister richer than the king?


Rishi Sunak, the 42-year-old Downing Street multimillionaire, has released his tax returns for the past few years. And this creates speculation.

The financial circumstances of former hedge fund manager Rishi Sunak and his wife Akshata Murthy, daughter of an Indian industrialist, are always a cause for speculation. Especially since Sunak has moved to 10 Downing Street as Prime Minister. British media are currently wondering if this is the first head of government richer than the head of state.

More than five million euros in three years – largely from capital gains
The reason for this is the now published tax return of Sunak over the past few years. His income (largely from capital gains) was £4.7 million between April 2019 and March 2022. Sunak paid the equivalent of 1.13 million euros in taxes for this.

Net worth of the Sunaks at over 800 million
His wife, on the other hand, is a tax resident in India. Your share in a software company would be worth more than 566 million euros. The family still owns a few houses and apartments together. According to the “Sunday Times”, the two are the 222nd richest in Britain with assets of about £730 million (about €824 million).
