Someone would need to check their books. A loss in German retail sounds suspicious but could have been set up costs.However Apple are avoiding taxes at corporate both in Ireland and/or the US.
It's retail competitors. As in the competitors to Apples retail division.Look. If the price to Apple retail in Germany of an iPhone is €450 and it's sold for €500 apple retail owes taxes on the profits garnered from the local revenue if any.It can be transfer pricing but only if the €450 is higher than the wholesale price charged to other retail stores selling the iPhone. That would be charging to Ireland revenue which would otherwise be taxed in Germany.If however Apple...
A remarkably economically illiterate piece from the WSJ. It's possible Apple Germany retail made a loss. However that piece seems to suggest that if an iPhone is sold in Germany all revenues should be booked to apples retail division there. That's never the case in for any good which is exported.It would only be transfer pricing if the cost to Apple retail were higher than the cost to its competitors.
Got a link for that?
That's Apple not paying tax in Ireland. It doesn't owe anything but taxes on profits in the retail sales in its own stores in Germany.
There is a EU case against Ireland ( I meant to say) re: Apple. The US was a hearing. I should have said "claims".
But that is in fact absolutely correct and moral behavior. It would be illegal to charge more to Apple retail than other retails, but it doesn't look like Apple is doing that. Its totally incorrect to say that Apple are moving profits to Ireland, all cases against Apple are that they are not paying tax in Ireland ( EU) or America (US Senate). 
I didn't say it was 12.5% on Apple's revenue but that they would be paying to Revenue. Which is the Irish IRS. 
No there is a double taxation agreement, as there is for US corporations. The senate committee got that totally wrong. It can be argued that tax should be paid where IP is generated but that is not now international law. The Senate accused Apple of avoiding tax in the US by avoiding tax in Europe, in fact Apple owes more back tax to the US because of it's low tax payments in Ireland. This is what they mean by their "effective tax rate" on all conference calls. Its about...
The best thing the EU should do if it wants to survice Yes, and of course just being there. The stickiness of having sunk capital and a workforce in a place. Apparently the workforce in Cork is about 50% non-Irish so it could theoretically go anywhere but the exodus in the EU is East West and South North not the other way around. Everybody thinks lower wages matter but not if you are attracting people from anywhere. Not that I would complain about Spain. I'd prefer Spain...
