Apple and Ireland win appeal against the European Commission’s $15 billion tax ruling


The European Commission previously claimed Ireland had allowed Apple to attribute nearly all its EU earnings to an Irish head office that existed only on paper, thereby avoiding paying tax on EU revenues.The commission said this constituted illegal aid given to Apple by the Irish state.


The EU's General Court said it had annulled that decision because there was not enough evidence to show Apple broke EU competition rules and the Irish government argued that Apple should not have to repay the back taxes, deeming that its loss was worth it to make the country an attractive home for large companies.
