Luke Ming Flanagan has supported the EU Commission's decision to appeal the Apple Tax ruling.

Four years ago, the European Commission said that the US tech giant owed Ireland €13 billion in unpaid taxes, because an alleged tax arrangement given to Apple had amounted to illegal state aid. 

After an appeal by Ireland and Apple, the General Court of the ECJ found in their favour in July this year, saying the Commission hadn’t met the legal standard required.

This means another few years before the courts, and before the issue is put to bed.

MEP for Midlands North West, Luke Ming Flanagan explained why he thinks Ireland would benefit in the long run if this latest appeal finds in favour of the EU Commission.
