Apple Begrudgingly Agrees To Pay Ireland $20 Billion In Back Taxes
06 December, 2017, 00:18 | Author: Regina Lloyd
The Ireland Department of Finance announced it has reached an agreement with Apple Inc.to put almost $15 billion in escrow while its dispute with the European Commission over alleged unpaid taxes proceeds through the courts.
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.
According to Wall Street Journal, Irish Finance Minister Paschal Donohoe said on Monday that both sides agreed to the terms of an escrow fund for the money.
The European Commission had ordered Ireland to collect the money after concluding that two Irish tax rulings allowed Apple to pay less tax than other businesses - thus giving them an unfair advantage. According to the EU, the tax deal allowed Apple to pay nearly nothing in tax on its European profits between 2003 and 2014.
