Rupert Grint Loses £1m Tax Rebate Appeal

Rupert Grint, who played Ron Weasley in the “Harry Potter” franchise, has lost a legal battle in which he appealed to win a £1million income tax refund.  

According to ‘The Guardian’: ‘A tax tribunal judge rejected the actor’s appeal against an HM Revenue and Customs block on him using a change in accounting dates to shield his earnings from the higher 50% tax rate. The actor is calculated to have earned around £24m from the Potter franchise playing the character Ron Weasley, best friend of the boy wizard.’

During the appeal Grint said his knowledge of his financial affairs was "quite limited" and his father, Nigel, and accountant, Dan Clay take care of his tax returns.
