Luxembourg asks Amazon to prepare 250 million euros
As we previously reported, according to estimates of the European Commission, Amazon had to pay 250 million euros in taxes. Reuters, it became known that the government contacted Amazon with the request to defer a specified amount. Meanwhile, Amazon is considering filing an appeal.
«It is clear that Amazon will have to pay, as required. The money will be in a separate account until the process is complete», — quotes Reuters the words of the press Secretary of the Ministry of Finance.
In other similar cases, including the situation with Fiat in Luxembourg, Starbucks in the Netherlands and 25 companies in Belgium, the money was obtained even before the expiry of the appeal.
We will remind, in one case the European Commission is suing Ireland due to the fact that she’s not recovered from the Apple 13 billion euros of taxes.
