One Direction earn £202,000 a day as they approach hiatus

One Direction won't have to worry about money during their upcoming hiatus. The band turned over an incredible £73,735,400 in 2014 with profits of £45,308,162 – which equates to £202,000 a day.

As the figures are taken from December 2014, before Zayn Malik left the band, he still gets a 20% share of the profits from the business 1D Media Limited. Remaining band members Harry Styles, Liam Payne, Louis Tomlinson and Niall Horan all own a 1/5th share in the company, which is one of four UK companies set up by the group.

The band are currently busy touring the globe on their On The Road Again Tour and will release their final album Made in the AM in November, before taking an extended break in March 2016. They have made their fortunes through extensive touring and record sales, having sold more than 45 million records to date.

They will be hoping to emulate the success of their previous four albums with their upcoming release, and judging by the reaction to new single Perfect on Friday they won't be disappointed.

The release of the single, co-written by Harry and Louis, led to 'It's Perfect Day' trending worldwide on Twitter, with many suggesting it was written about Harry's ex-girlfriend Taylor Swift.

Like Taylor, the boys have invested much of their earnings into building impressive property portfolios. Harry owns a £6million mansion in Los Angeles as well as a £3m North London home, while Louis also owns a £2.2million London property.

Niall Horan owns two homes; a £1million Hertfordshire property and £1.5million base in Los Angeles, while Liam splashed out £5.1million on a Surrey mansion earlier this year.

Meanwhile Zayn is currently trying to sell the £4.2million mansion he owns in North London, after calling off his engagement to Little Mix star Perrie Edwards in August.
