London partner Matthew Hall co-hosted the September 7 episode of the ABA’s Our Curious Amalgam podcast on the topic “Still The Largest Taxpayer in the World? Apple Avoids Massive Tax Payment to Ireland.”
The European Commission’s EU State aid investigations into the tax ruling practices of EU countries are highly controversial – none more so than its ruling, overturned in court, that Apple pay back multi-billion Euros to Ireland. What is EU State aid law and what are these cases about? Matthew Hall discusses the background to the Apple/Ireland case, the findings in the case, why it was overturned and the implications of this. Listen to this episode to learn more about the critical area of EU State aid law and its application to tax rulings in the EU.
