Europe to order Apple to cough up 'one beeellion Euros in back taxes'

Brian O'Byrne

The money goes to the Irish revenue commissioners, regardless of what happens elsewhere in the EU.

And yes, that does make it a bit 'interesting' to see the Irish government vow to appeal the ruling. We could do with an extra billion in the coffers. The thing is that the government would prefer to have a ruling that says there was no breach of the state aid rules even if that costs a billion in back taxes.
