Background information:

On April 24, the Irish Minister of Finance Paschal Donohoe confirmed that an agreement with Apple was reached in order to pay the amount of money the EU Commission asked when ruling that the tax aid given by Ireland were at odds with the EU law.

The European Commission in its 2016 ruling ordered that Apple shall pay the Government the amount of €13bn plus interest.

Both Apple and the Irish Government are appealing the ruling on the grounds that Apple’s tax treatment was in line with Irish and European Union law.
