The problem for the EU is that if these companies like Starbucks continue to be allowed to trade, the whole tax regime folds. They need to get serious. Interestingly, because of the large scale tax evasion a good percentage of the UK population rightly boycott Starbucks. The reason being that Starbucks undermines the UK economy.
The 2% is more myth than fact.It is more like 0.25%.
This appleinsider write-up does somewhat look like it is lobbying on behalf of Apple.
