We spend millions of pounds a year with thousands of small, medium and large businesses across the UK and North America, helping secure jobs through the supply chain.
Stagecoach has invested more than £1billion in around 6,500 new buses for its networks in the UK in the past decade, with the vast majority of orders going to British manufacturers and helping safeguard and create jobs in the UK. The financial burden of this investment if bus services were publicly owned would otherwise fall to taxpayers.
As a business we make a major social and economic contribution to the UK and we generate around 30% more in total tax incomes for the country than our business makes in profits.
Through payroll, corporation taxes and other business-related taxes, Stagecoach Group and our employees contribute over £300 million to the UK Exchequer each year. In recent years, we have also made millions of pounds of additional pension contributions on top of our regular payments as part of our commitment to our people.
