[LEVELS] #FINE: APPLE JUST PAID $118MILLION TAX EVASION FINE TO JAPANESE GOVERNMENT.

Barely 24hours after Local authorities in Japan  ordered Apple to pay 12 billion yen ($118m) in taxes for allegedly underreporting earnings that were sent to a business unit in Ireland, an Apple business unit has since paid the amount, according to local broadcaster NHK .

It is understood that the Tokyo Regional Taxation Bureau determined that the unit, which sends part of its profits earned from fees paid by Japanese subscribers to another Apple unit in Ireland, was withholding tax on those earnings in Japan.

The decision comes on the back of the

European Commission ruling requiring Apple to pay €13bn in back taxes, alleging Apple received illegal state aid from Ireland.

Both Apple and the Irish Government have rejected the European Commission’s ruling and have said they intend to appeal in the European courts and overturn the decision.

The €13bn is to be held in an escrow account while the case finds its way through the European courts, in a process that could take several years.
