So Apple pays Ireland back with 3 Apple Stores?
Tax avoidance as opposed to tax evasion.
The first is legal, the second is not.
Until they realise that they agreed to be part of the EU, which was set up partly to deal with fragmentation of business by enabling a single EU wide entity rather than one for each country.
Somehow I don't think dismantling the EU would go across too well.

@Marvin it is tax deferal. Apple owes the tax unpaid in Ireland to the US on repatriation
??? The corporate taxes being dodged are from sales originating in those "other countries" within the EU that you say "have no claims on Apple's corporate tax same as Ireland has no claim on BMW's."
Side question: How's that whole EU thing working out for you guys?
Where did you get that Apple was paying 12.5% tax to Ireland? More like +/- 2%.
