Ireland to appeal Apple tax decision this week

Wednesday 9 November 2016 | 10:03 CET | News
Ireland's Finance Minister Michael Noonan said the government will this week formally submit its appeal against the European Commission's EUR 13 billion demand for back taxes from Apple, Reuters reported. Ireland's cabinet agreed in September to join Apple in appealing the Commission's order. Dublin is seeking to protect a tax regime that has attracted many multinational employers. The European Commission decision has also angered Washington, which accuses it of trying to grab tax revenue that should go to the US.
