Saxon Posted August 31, 2016 Share Posted August 31, 2016 Those of you keeping up with the news may have heard that the European Commission recently ordered Apple to pay 13 billion Euros in back tax (no fine, that's just the tax that the EC believes Apple has escaped paying). Normally corporation tax in Ireland, where Apple is based, is 12.5%, but Apple set up subsidiary companies such that they really only ended up paying between 1 and 0.005% tax. You can read more about it here: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-37226101 The treasury of the USA, Apple and Ireland are protesting the record back taxes. What do you think? Was Apple's tax situation fair in your view and do you think the resolution of the EC is fair? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
