Pay up: Apple's 'sweetheart tax deal turns sour'

30 August 2016 - 12:30pm
Press release

Responding to news that Apple have been ordered to pay up to €13bn in Irish taxes, Owen Espley, War on Want’s Economic Justice Campaigner, said: 

"Multinationals are dodging taxes on an industrial scale, leaving the public short changed. This sweetheart deal has turned sour for Apple and it’s time they paid up. Until companies are forced to publicly report the profits they make and taxes they pay everywhere they operate, tax dodgers will continue want their cake and eat it.

"It’s time for tax justice - we need transparency through country-by-country reporting and an end to tax competition which leads to a race to the bottom for everyone, with the public left footing the bill."
