Rio Tinto has revealed that it paid a total of $A4.9bn in taxes and royalties in Australia during 2017, compared with $A3.9bn in 2016. The Federal Government’s share of taxes paid by Rio Tinto in 2017 was $A2.4bn, while its Western Australian counterpart received $A1.8bn. Rio Tinto continues to attract scrutiny over its use of a marketing hub in Singapore, where its total tax paid was just $A31m in 2017.
