Ireland to collect $15B in back taxes from Apple

Ireland starts collecting back-tax from Apple Escrow you, Apple! Ireland expects Cupertino to cough up to €13bn
Kelvin Reese | 06 Декабря, 2017, 00:52

The European Commission ruled in August 2016 that the iPhone maker must reimburse the Irish state a record 13 billion euros to make up for what it considered to be unpaid taxes over a number of years. It has taken just over a year, but Apple and Ireland have finally reached an agreement to start collecting the money and placing it into an escrow account. The figure is reportedly 40 times bigger than any previous demand under European Union rules prohibiting countries from helping companies gain advantages over their competitors. According to the EU, the tax deal allowed Apple to pay nearly nothing in tax on its European profits between 2003 and 2014. It is important that we send a strong message that Ireland remains an attractive and stable location of choice for long-term substantive investment.

Having long disputed the ruling and failing to collect the tax, the case was sent to the European Court of Justice.

Ireland's Department of Finance called the move "extremely regrettable", saying that it had already been making progress toward dealing with "the unprecedented recovery amount" it had to collect from Apple.

Apple is just one of many technology companies whose tax arrangements in Europe have been criticized.

As a result of both parties contesting the ruling, the matter is now awaiting a European Court of Justice decision, and the money will be paid into the escrow account in the interim. Jersey is a self-governing dependency of the United Kingdom, and the island does not charge corporate tax for most companies.

Apple believes that the ruling will be overturned in time and that it's acted in accordance with the law.
