Corporate income tax paid
This comprises corporate income tax paid in 2022, as recorded in Shell's Consolidated Statement of Cash Flows, and includes accrued withholding taxes on dividend, interest and royalty payments to Shell entities. In some cases, this may include payments made in relation to previous years or future years as tax payments are often made in arrears or in advance. It does not include withholding taxes collected by Shell on dividends paid to shareholders. Nor does it include corporate income tax paid by non-consolidated joint ventures and associates.
