Despite the fact that the European Commission does not stop in its effort to fine the Cupertino company for the alleged evasion of taxes at its headquarters in Ireland, the company itself Ireland It seems that he has appealed the fine of 13.000 million imposed on Apple for these tax credits in the country.
We are no longer talking about Apple appealing the decision of the European Commission, but the country itself that exposes that they do not agree that Apple has to pay that fine because Apple is up to date on all the taxes that they themselves requested at the time.
These statements have been made by the Irish Finance Minister Michael Noonan himself, who states that they have no choice but to file this appeal by not agreeing with what the European Commission has dictated.
Now why does Ireland take that position and not want receive 13.000 billion from Apple in taxes not satisfied? The key is that for years it has been Ireland itself that has been carrying out a specific tax policy that has allowed it to have the headquarters of the main and most powerful technology multinationals with all that this entails.
We'll have to wait to find out if both Ireland and Apple finally get away with it. or if the European Commission imposes itself on a subject that any mortal does not quite understand. What is clear is that it is very rare for a country to be the one that refuses to fine a company like Apple in relation to an alleged tax evasion. Doesn't that sound strange to you?
