The Beatles still rake in £67,000 a day from a company they formed before they split, nearly 50 years ago.
Apple Corps, set up in 1968 to manage their affairs, declared a turnover of £24.4 million for the year ending January 31. It is owned by surviving Beatles Sir Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr, as well as George Harrison and John Lennon’s widows Olivia and Yoko Ono. Accounts show each was paid £2.97 million in “aggregate fees for promotional services, name and likeness”.
