Immigrants arriving in the UK since 2000 have made a significantly positive net contribution to the UK’s fiscal system.
(PRWEB UK) 29 November 2013
It has been reported in Expat Forum that immigrants arriving in the UK since 2000 have made a significantly positive net contribution to the UK’s fiscal system. Written by Professor Christian Dustmann and Dr. Tommaso Frattini, the report, entitled The Fiscal Effects of Immigration to the UK, published November 2013, finds that this is especially true of UK immigrants from the European Economic Area, where people have contributed approximately 34% more in taxes than they received through benefits. A couple of notable benefits include less financial burden on born UK workers as well as better education. In 2011, 32% of recent EEA immigrants and 43% of recent non-EEA immigrants had a university degree.
Renowned for being one of the UK’s most trusted overseas removal companies, Interdean take an active interest in all issues regarding the industry. As such, a representative from the firm has shared their thoughts on the wider benefits of international immigrants to the UK.
“As well as financial benefits and contributions to the fiscal system, immigrants to the UK can have a positive impact on our country through the extra demands created for both national and local business. It also helps to broaden the culture experienced by native UK residents. As it becomes more common for people to move around and explore new surroundings, we would expect to see more research of this nature.”
