Paradise Papers: Apple moved offshore tax haven to Jersey after Ireland crackdown

They were reviewed and released by the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists.

European Competition Commissioner Margrethe Vestager, who issued the record back-tax bill against Apple in August 2016, said she wanted to make sure the company now complies with the bloc's rules which ban unfair state aid. According to the New York Times, the star would have shares in a company of medical equipment. The group at the apple then moved to Jersey where the tax rate for companies is zero.

Since then, all of Apple's Irish operations have been conducted through Irish resident companies, paying a statutory 12.5% tax, according to the California-based technology titan.

Instead of paying Irish corporation tax of 12.5%, or the United States rate of 35%, its foreign tax payments rarely amounted to more than 5 % of its foreign profits - and dipped below 2% in some years.

'Jersey does not want abusive tax avoidance schemes operating in the Island and expects financial services providers to abide by a voluntary code to say they will not take on this kind of business, ' she said. Representatives for Hamilton could not be reached by AFP for comment. These funds placed in tax havens, according to the revelations of the global Consortium of investigative journalists (ICIJ), invested in many companies including Brighthouse, a business of hire purchase of electrical appliances british accused to take advantage of the misery through repayments to interest rate prohibitive.

Cook has said the Commission's ruling has "no basis in fact or in law", calling it "obvious targeting of Apple".

The leaks also reveal more information regarding US President Donald Trump and the Russian Government.

The billionaire investor told Bloomberg on Monday he was not intending to hold onto his stake: "I've been actually selling it anyway but that isn't because of this".

In a statement reported by Russian news agencies, Sibur voiced its "amazement at the politically charged interpretation in some media of ordinary commercial activity".

Even if corporation tax intake has grown, the Paradise Papers have still revealed just how much more would be taken if multinational corporations followed tax rules "in spirit" rather than just in letter. This includes the revelation that the Queen's private estate invested £10 million in private offshore estate.

The company said it "pays every dollar it owes in every country around the world", including tax in the U.S.at the standard rate of 35% and an effective rate of 21% on foreign earnings.

One of them is believed to have access to the more than $250 billion of the company's cash, according to the so-called Paradise Papers, obtained by the German newspaper Sueddeutsche Zeitung.

The documents also suggest that Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's top fundraiser and senior advisor Stephen Bronfman, heir to the Seagram fortune, moved about $60 million to offshore tax havens with ex-senator Leo Kolber.
