Complainant Name:
Mr Adam Olsen

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Daily Mail


Mr Adam Osen complained to the Press Complaints Commission, under Clause 1 (Accuracy) of the Editors' Code of Practice, about an article which he considered had inaccurately reported the level of pre-tax earnings required for an individual to earn £41,000 after tax.


The complaint was resolved after the PCC negotiated the publication of the following correction:

A comment article on 10 July said that, in order to take home £41,000 you would have to be earning £64,000 before tax. In fact the correct pre-tax figure is around £60,000.
