A little comment by Ben S has triggered a thought.
The EU’s tax demand on Apple in Ireland was based upon he idea that no tax was being paid anywhere. Verstaeger herself has said this. That if Apple paid US tax then that would change the Irish tax case.
One point would be that this shows what bollocks the tax case was in the first place. The other is that apple has just announced that it will be remitting that money into the US nd will be paying US corporate income tax upon it.
Collapse of EU tax case concerning Apple and Ireland, no?
I wonder what Spud is going to say about this? Especially since it pulls the rug from under the feet of most of the whining about tech giant taxes…..
