The BBC Annual Report and Accounts 2016/17 includes a breakdown of how much of their TV tax is collected and spent in each UK country (apart from England). This is summarised in the table below.

Interesting that Wales and Northern Ireland get to keep most of their tax but Scotland gives up £88.7 million or 27%.

Also interesting that the BBC do not see the need for a report section for England. Maybe it would then be obvious where Scotland’s missing millions are spent?
