Great to hear Apple CEO @tim_cook speak so fondly of Apple’s 40 years in Cork during his keynote address at the #LookingToTheFuture event in the National Concert Hall this morning. pic.twitter.com/Wqp1yWUR4g

Taoiseach Leo Varadkar on stage as tax-owing Apple CEO Tim Cook addresses an IDA ”Looking To The Future’ event.

Leo dying to be as close to a reasonably successful person as possible, hoping some of it will rub off. Even Tim Apple.
Did he bring a cheque with him to pay an outstanding tax bill?
I think Apple actually paid their tax bill. The government haven’t collected it, it’s in an escrow account.
Exactly. It’s just resting in our account.
Easy to see why Leo opted for this ego-boosting love-in over Davos.
Tax cheats cheat us all.
Apple are fully tax compliant (if it is the 17bn you refer to). They have paid the €17bn into an escrow fund. Apple cannot access that money.
They are appealing the tax ruling, and may get the money back.
Shush you with your facts, the rabble have spoken…….
Apple aren’t appealing anything. The government is appealing on their behalf. Sad really.
a little birdie told me, on reasonably good authority, noonan fiddled them another 0% deal and they are back paying nothing again.
s’where the 26% gdp growth business came from
“Corporate inversions involve companies seeking to cut their tax bills by redomiciling overseas, with their core operations usually remaining in the original jurisdiction even as they claim a new tax home. Ireland has become a favoured destination for such fiscal engineering in recent years.”
No sign of Ricky Gervais.
hes better as lilly savage!
