文章来源背景和来源:

Apple wins court battle over $15B, limiting EU’s tax authority

苹果赢得 150 亿美元的法庭之争,限制了欧盟的税务机关

Source: https://www.csmonitor.com/Business/2020/0715/Apple-wins-court-battle-over-15B-limiting-EU-s-tax-authority

背景:7月15日,欧盟普通法院对金额高达150亿美元(130亿欧元)的苹果爱尔兰税收上诉案作出裁决,判定欧盟委员会提供的证据不足于支持苹果获得不公平的税收优势,因此2016年欧盟委员会命令爱尔兰向苹果追缴税款的指令无效。法院指出,虽然“遗憾地看到”苹果公司与爱尔兰政府达成的协定存在不完善和不一致的地方,但这些漏洞不能支持委员会基于“禁止国家援助”的条款对苹果进行制裁。被称为“硅谷首席折磨者”的欧盟竞争事务专员玛格丽特·维斯塔格宣布将仔细研究裁决,以决定将来的行动;根据程序,欧盟委员会还可向欧盟最 高法院提起上诉.
