The boys in One Direction raked in more than £200,000 PER DAY last year, staggering figures have revealed.
A sellout tour, bumper record sales and lucrative merchandising saw revenue at their company 1D Media Limited rise by 50 per cent to £73.7 million.
Post-tax profits for the group rocketed by 830 per cent from £3.75 million to £34.98 million.
The company, which lists heartthrobs Niall, Liam, Harry, Louis and Zayn as sole directors and shareholders, now has assets worth more than £57 million.
Despite the bumper figures, none of the singers took dividends and instead were paid annual salaries of just £109,722 each.
But the group wouldn’t have been short of cash – in 2013 they took out £28.1 million between them in “remuneration”.
Records from Companies House state the main source of income is from touring, merchandising and recording.
The ‘Where We Are Tour’ saw the band play 69 gigs around the world in 2014, while more than 3.2 million fans bought the album ‘Four’.
They also racked up administrative expenses of £28.5 million – which could have gone on taking them around the world on private jets and putting them up in the poshest hotels.
