EU DEMANDS BACK TAX FROM AMAZON AND REQUESTS IRELAND PUT PRESSURE ON APPLE
The EU is cracking down on companies utilizing tax loopholes to lessen their financial burden, and it is starting with arguably the most prominent companies it could, Apple and Amazon.
The European Union is coming after Amazon that has, in its eyes, made use of an illegal tax deal in Luxemburg. Since 2003, when it set up its subsidiary in the country, the EU claims that Amazon has received illegal state aid. As such, Amazon is in the red for a quarter of a billion euros for the period.
Margrethe Vestager, the European Commissioner for Competition shared her findings on the Amazon case. “Luxembourg gave illegal tax benefits to Amazon. As a result, almost three quarters of Amazon’s profits were not taxed. In other words, Amazon was allowed to pay four times less tax than other local companies subject to the same national tax rules.“
In addition, Ireland is being taken to court for its failings in collecting tax from Apple, which, in Europe, calls the nation home. The fee is reportedly around €13bn in back taxes.
