Apple’s main Irish arm paid more than $8.5 billion in corporation tax in 2021

Apple’s main Irish entity paid three times as much corporation tax last year as it did in 2020, according to accounts just filed. The financial accounts of Apple Operations International Ltd and more than 20 connected companies filed with the Dublin Companies Office reveal details of the profits, costs and taxes paid by the global tech giant’s non-US businesses.

Apple Operations International Ltd’s filing says it paid $8.595 billion (€8.13 billion) in corporation tax in 2021. That figure is more than three times the tax bill of 2.593 billion euros of the company in 2020.
