The European Commission has signalled its intention to publish the Final Decision in the Apple State aid case. This was sent to Ireland at the end of August.
Ireland does not accept the Commission’s analysis, which is why we have lodged an application with the General Court of the European Union to annul the whole Decision.
Ireland did not give favourable tax treatment to Apple – the full amount of tax was paid in this case and no State aid was provided. Ireland does not do deals with taxpayers.
A summary of our legal arguments has been published and is available from the Department of Finance website.
