An annual financial report from Companies House show that each member of One Direction earned approximately £19,000 per day in 2014. Yep, that's nineteen thousand pounds per day, not a typo.
According to the reports, their company 1D Media achieved a turnover of £73.7m last, year. They spent over £28m in administrative expenses (we guess most of that went on private jets and tour buses,) leaving them with a profit of £35m after tax. That works out at about £19,000 per day per member. To put it in some perspective, an average 22 year-old with a degree takes home an annual salary of £17,000.
And although Zayn Malik left his bandmates Harry Styles, Liam Payne, Niall Horan and Louis Tomlinson earlier this year in favour of a solo career, he is still entitled to a large chunk of the profit as he only departed in March.
The band's profits is almost ten times the amount they took home in 2013, thanks to their worldwide tour, extra merchandise, recordings and sponsorship deals.
And it looks like the remaining members could be celebrating even larger figures next year. Their latest single Perfect, has shot straight to the top of the iTunes chart and within minutes of being released #ItsPerfectDay started trending worldwide on social media.
The song, the second single off the upcoming album Made in the A.M., was co-written by Louis Tomlinson and Harry Styles. After its release many fans and bloggers took to social media speculating that the song is about Style's ex-girlfriend Taylor Swift. Taking the lead in the second chorus he sings: "But if you like causing trouble up in hotel rooms / And if you like having secret little rendezvous / If you like to do the things you know that we shouldn't do / Baby, I'm perfect / Baby, I'm perfect for you / And if you like midnight driving with the windows down / And if you like going places we can't even pronounce / If you like to do whatever you've been dreaming about / Baby, you're perfect / Baby, you're perfect / So let's start right now."

Although, Styles has yet to comment on the allegations he only added fuel to the rumour fire when he was interviewed on a radio show in Australia. "Perfect is for sure a love song, but it's quite a spontaneous love song," Styles said on the Smallzy's Surgery show broadcast on Nova 96.9FM radio. "It's not one about thinking through too much, being like, 'Hey, I want to be with you for the rest of my life.' It's like well, you know, 'This could be fun.'" Speaking about the songwriting process, Tomlinson said, "You write about your own experiences," while Styles added, "It doesn't always have to be an exact story."
