I'm finding this news hard to grasp this morning, but it appears Ireland has won its case with the EU regarding the Apple tax.

Apple will be celebrating today as they get to keep 14 Billion and the Irish get to celebrate as we get to say no to 14 Billion and raise taxes instead!

Apple and Ireland have won their appeal against the European Commission's €13.1bn tax ruling.

The General Court of the European Union has annulled the decision taken by the Commission regarding the Irish tax rulings in favour of Apple.

In a statement, the Department of Finance said it welcomes the judgment by the EU court.

"Ireland has always been clear that there was no special treatment provided to the two Apple companies - ASI and AOE. The correct amount of Irish tax was charged ... in line with normal Irish taxation rules," it said.

"Ireland appealed the commission decision on the basis that Ireland granted no state aid and the decision today from the court supports that view."

The European Commission is expected to appeal the judgement to the upper court.

A welcome victory. The Commission overstepped the mark big time. We need the multinationals especially now.

We don't need anti-Irish EU shills cheerleading a zero percent tax rate for multinationals

We also don't need these mega globo-homo corporations further undermining the character of the Gael, as they are wont to do
