Ireland has the right to make certain corporations exempt from taxes. (exa. hospitals, foreign corps and charity organizations)
Ireland has the right to lower taxable profits for certain products or services. (exa. software products)
These are the rights of a SOVEREIGN STATE.
The EU has no right to decide what kind of tax policy Ireland uses.
The only enforcement power the EU has is if a specific company can break Irish tax laws while other companies can't.
Apple has not broken a SINGLE IRISH TAX LAW. That means any other company could have done the EXACT same things Apple had done and achieve the same lower tax rate.
This decision by the EU is saying that Ireland no longer has the SOVEREIGN right to decide what taxes they can charge. This is madness. The EU is and was never suppose to be the ULTIMATE TAXING AUTHORITY of Europe. Its absolutely ridiculous.
I am european when it is good for me but for the rest I do what I want. Simple. BREXIT!
