Appeal revokes decision that Apple has to pay €13 billion in tax arrears to the Republic of Ireland

Technology company Apple is not obliged to pay €13 billion in tax arrears to the Republic of Ireland after it succeeded in winning an appeal it had lodged with the second highest Court in the European Union.

The Court revoked the decision taken by the EU Commission in 2016 and concluded it had not been proven that Apple had breached competition rules.

The decision is seen as a great blow to the EU in its efforts to control alleged tax evasions. However, the EU Commission still has the opportunity to appeal and contest the decision.
