Apple Takes Bite Out Of European Union’s Attempt To Squash EU Sweetheart Tax Deal With Ireland

Apple Ireland Tax Case

Alleged Apple Ireland tax avoidance has rumbled on for four years. Initially Apple tax avoidance was alleged in sweetheart tax deal with Ireland so that Ireland could attract thousands of tech jobs to Ireland. The EU won the previous alleged Apple tax scandal but even the Irish government did not want Apple to pay any more tax. Apple was instructed to pay Ireland 13 billion euros in taxes. The European Commission said Apple benefited from illegal state aid via two Irish tax rulings that artificially reduced Apple tax burden for over two decades to as low as 0.005 percent in 2014.

The Irish government at that time backed the Apple tax case appeal and Apple have now won. Europe’s second highest court has now rejected an EU order for Apple to pay 13 billion euros. The EU can appeal the decision if it wants to to the EU Court of Justice which is the highest court in the European Union.

3rd March 2020 Irish Tax Take Jumps

Ireland took 13.8 percent more tax in February year on year. Although corporation tax rate in Ireland is low its tax take from businesses is rising.

The Irish economy has been the best performing in the European Union since 2014.

3rd December Is Irelands Economic Success Story Been Due To Being A Member Of European Union EU Or Down To One Of Lowest Corporation Tax Levels?

Much is made of Irelands dramatic recovery from the 2008 financial crisis. Many want to make a political case out of Irelands membership of the European Union. Much more likely is the lowest levels of corporations that have attracted the worlds biggest firms to base themselves in Ireland.

The settling of the biggest firms in the world is down to super low corporation tax levels especially at a time when firms face reputational issues from not paying sufficient tax. If they have to pay more tax they would rather pay more tax in Ireland where corporation tax levels are amongst the lowest if not lowest in the developed world.

The effective corporation tax rate in Ireland in 2012 was around 9 percent!


Compare that to other European Union countries corporation tax levels. Even the UK which has low corporation tax levels charges more than double that level!

  • In 2019 Ireland is forecasting to run a budget surplus of around 0.4 percent
  • Corporate tax receipts in Ireland have more than doubled since 2012 mainly due to a large number of multinational firms moving to Ireland from the likes of USA
  • Last year Irelands corporation tax take hit a new record high of more than 10 billion euros
  • This year Irelands tax take is forecast by the Irish government to exceed last years record and exceed 11 billion euros
  • Next year in a global economic slowdown Irelands government expects another record corporation tax take

As a result Ireland is expecting to reduce sovereign debt and increase public spending.

Many politicians around the world seek to win votes by talking about and introducing higher taxation on businesses. Ireland demonstrates that a country can benefit more from lower corporation tax. It is the amount of the money taken in tax that counts for public spending not the rate of tax.

A standard free trade deal of the type agreed between Canada and the EU could cause EU economic growth loss of 0.8 percent.

The UKs International Trade Secretary Dr Liam Fox claims Irelands economy could reduce by up to 8 percent if the EU did not agree a deal with Britain.

Many believe a no deal Brexit is more likely now than ever before.

The UK is among the top three main trading partners of the euro area IMF Report
