No offence taken at all, I agree for the most part.I think every country is entitled to tax whatever it wants though. If it undercuts another country, the other country can lower its rate too. What we have here though, they are not paying the tax rate of all "normal" companies in Ireland. It's corruption, plain and simple.This would be how I feel about the whole thing:
The main issue here is Small to medium size companies in Ireland pay 12.5%. Is this a low CT rate, yes.
The problem is Apple are paying closer to 2%, which is ridiculous.
The greed to move to a lower CT country is one thing, but to not even pay that due to shenanigans by the bent politicians is another.
