    EU says Irish government hasn't handed over full data in Apple tax case




    Ireland has yet to supply all the data asked for by the European Commission in its investigation of the country's tax deals with Apple, a spokesman for the organization said on Wednesday.

    Ireland "did not reply in full to the Commission's last request for information, which is why the Commission has sent a reminder to Ireland to request the missing data," Ricardo Cardoso wrote in an email received by Bloomberg. The exact nature of the absent data wasn't specified.

    Nevertheless, the Irish Finance Ministry issued a statement of its own, insisting that it has "comprehensively addressed" the Commission's concerns and that "the appropriate amount of Irish tax was charged in accordance with the relevant legislation."

    The Commission is still investigating whether Ireland extended illegal state aid to Apple in the form of preferential tax deals. Should a ruling support that argument, the Irish government could be asked to collection billions of dollars in back taxes, though both Apple and Ireland are likely to appeal.

    On Tuesday Apple's VP of European operations, Cathy Kearney, appeared in front of the European Parliament and insisted that Apple has "paid every cent of tax" it owes. Regardless of what happens, the company is "committed to Ireland," she said.
