European Commission vs. Ireland and Apple, August 2016, State Aid Decision

« | »

According to the European Commission Ireland gave illegal tax benefits to Apple worth up to €13 billion

The European Commission has concluded that Ireland granted undue tax benefits of up to €13 billion to Apple. This is illegal under EU state aid rules, because it allowed Apple to pay substantially less tax than other businesses. Ireland must now recover the illegal aid.
