The European Commission , the EU's policy-enforcement agency, has formed a 'Max Force' investigation into 'improper relations' between Apple and the Irish government. As a result, he ordered Apple to impose additional tax, saying that the unreasonable tax incentive brought profit of 13 billion dollars (about 1.6 trillion yen) to Apple. However, Apple and the Irish government both appealed this decision.

The General Court of the EU pointed out that 'the European Commission could not provide sufficient legal basis' on this matter. We have found the European Commission's claim that 'the Irish government was giving unfair tax treatment to Apple's subsidiaries' to be false.
Incidentally, the European Commission ordered an additional tax of 30 million euros (about 3,550 million yen) as the Dutch government gave unfair tax treatment to Starbucks, before and after the additional taxation order to Apple. However, this was also invalidated by the EU General Court in September 2019. On the other hand, the decision of the European Commission was approved for the additional taxation of the Fiat Chrysler Automobiles by the Luxembourg government.
