Tim Cook: EU lied about Apple taxes. Watch out Ireland, this is a coup!


I do wish someone would ask Cook why iTunes, registered in the pseudo tax haven of Luxembourg used to charge all EU customers the higher Irish VAT rate of 23%. Doubtless he would say that the servers were based in Ireland.

However if I buy something from the MS or Google store, I am taxed UK VAT and AFAIK their servers are based in Ireland as well.

I wonder if they used all of that lovely VAT to sway the Irish Taxman.
