Amazon UK Head Office

Amazon’s Economic Impact in the UK

Last year we celebrated our 20th anniversary in the UK, and we thought now would be a good moment to step back and reflect on what our overall economic contribution has been to the UK over that time. We’re sharing a snapshot of our job creation, tax contributions, and broader economic impact in the UK, including economic analysis that builds on our regular reporting cycle to go deeper than usual and provide a better understanding of our business and how we support the communities where we operate.

Investing in the future of British talent

We’re announcing a new fully-funded apprenticeship programme, giving 1,000 new recruits and existing employees an exciting path to becoming Amazon’s future leaders, engineers and innovators.

Amazon’s UK Business Rate Payments

We have close to 100 UK sites, and last year Amazon paid business rates of more than £63 million – tens of millions of pounds more than estimates and more than is paid by many well-known high street retailers.

In “the land of high passes,” the challenges are as vast as the landscape.
