This year’s TV tax take from Scotland is buried on page 155 of the BBC’s Annual Report and Accounts 2017/18.

The main figures are shown in the table below. You can see that last year they took 88.7 million pounds from Scotland to spend elsewhere. This year they have increased their take to 101.1 million pounds.

In other words, only 69% of the money raised in Scotland is spent in Scotland.
