How Google Escaped€1.1bn France Tax

Google is not liable for 1. 115 billion euros ( $1. 272 billion ) in unpaid taxes claimed by the French state, a French court ruled Wednesday , saying the internet giant ’ s Irish subsidiary is not taxable in France .

“ The French company Google Ireland Limited ( GIL ) is not taxable in France for the 2005 to 2010 period , ” the court ruled.

Google paid just 6. 7 million euros in corporate taxes in 2015 in France by booking revenues for its online empire at its European subsidiary in low- tax Ireland , a legal loophole prized by multinationals .

The group employs 700 people in France but advertising contracts for its search engine or video -sharing website YouTube are signed with its Irish subsidiary .

The French claim was the latest in a series against the California – based group , which faces mounting legal problems in the EU .

European action has become increasingly aggressive against US technology giants Amazon , Facebook and Apple as well as Google.
