EU Commissioner faces TDs and Senators over Apple tax ruling

The European Commissioner who investigated the Apple tax ruling says the vast majority of the back-tax is due in Ireland.

Margrethe Vestager has appeared before the Oireachtas Finance Committee after ruling last year that 13 billion is owed by the US giant.

The Government’s appealing to the European Courts and one of its grounds is that it can not be a tax collector for all of Europe.

But the Commissioner says the money’s owed to Ireland.
