Apple’s $14.5 Billion State Aid Ruling

Date: Tuesday, October 11, 2016 12:00 PM - 01:30 PM

Venue: Covington and Burling LLP, Washington, DC

The European Commission recently ruled that Apple must pay a record-breaking €13 billion ($14.5 billion) in back taxes and interest to Ireland for alleged underpayments in violation of EU state aid rules. Given the broad implications of this decision, which lies at the intersection of European tax and competition law, we have assembled a leading panel of tax and competition experts, including current and former government officials and leading practitioners, to discuss the consequences of this decision.


  • Robert Stack, Washington, Deputy Assistant Secretary (International Tax Affairs), U.S. Department of the Treasury
  • Johan Ysewyn, Brussels and London, Head of the firm’s EU Competition group and State Aid practice
  • Sophie Bertin, Brussels, former Head of Unit within the Directorate-General for Competition at the European Commission
  • Rob Culbertson, Washington, former IRS Associate Chief Counsel (International), will moderate the discussion
