The Irish Parliament 93 votes against 36 supported the initiative of the government to challenge the decision of the European Commission, which obliges Ireland to recover from Apple billions of euros in taxes 13.
Voted against party «Sinn FEIN» and a few left-centrist parties.
We will remind that on August 30, the European Commission decided that the tax agreement between Apple and the Irish government violated the laws of the European Union.
In this regard, the European Commission requires Apple to return to the Irish Treasury 13 billion euros of unpaid 1991 taxes.
In recent decades Ireland, thanks to an attractive tax policy, became the basis of many large corporations using their Irish subsidiaries for tax evasion in countries with higher tax rates.
