    Ireland should recover up to €13bn (£11bn) from Apple in back taxes, the European Commission has ruled.After a three-year investigation, it has concluded that the US firm's tax benefits are illegal.

    The European Commission has ordered Apple to pay the record sum after finding it paid as little as €50 on every €1m of profit.

    The tech giant's tax arrangements enabled it to pay a tax rate of as little as 0.005% on its European profits in 2014, according to the probe.That is just €50 (£43) in taxes on every €1m (£850m) of profit.

    How could any company get away with paying essentially such a small sum of tax?
