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.

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.
