Jul 20, 2020

Executive Vice-President of the European Commission, Margrethe Vestager, has said that “we will carefully study the judgement and reflect on possible next steps” following the judgement by the General Court that annuals the European Commission’s decision that Ireland granted illegal State aid to Apple through selective tax breaks. The Vice-President also said that “the Commission will continue to look at aggressive tax planning measures under EU State aid rules to assess whether they result in illegal State aid.” Read the press statement and our analysis on the judgement in the Irish tax section and media section for more information.
