    EU says McDonald's, Luxembourg tax deal not illegal

    McDonald's tax deal with Luxembourg did not breach EU state aid rules, EU antitrust regulators have ruled, saying the reason the U.S. fast food chain did not pay some taxes was due to the mismatch between U.S. and Luxembourg laws. As Pascale Davies reports, the decision by the European Commission was part of its crackdown against illegal sweetheart deals between EU governments and multinationals.

    [$$] McDonald’s Avoids Fines as Europe Rules Its Tax Deal Is Legal

    BRUSSELS—European Union regulators said Wednesday that McDonald’s Corp.’s tax arrangement in Luxembourg is legal, dropping an investigation against the U.S. fast-food giant while lauding efforts to close tax loopholes highlighted in the probe. President Trump, like his predecessor in the White House, has accused the EU of unfairly punishing U.S. firms with antitrust and tax cases. While regulators did note loopholes that had allowed a McDonald’s franchising unit to avoid paying taxes on either side of the Atlantic, European Competition Commissioner Margrethe Vestager said the investigation into whether the company benefited from special treatment by an EU member state shows the bloc acts objectively.

    EU says McDonald's, Luxembourg tax deal not illegal

    McDonald's avoided having to repay millions of euros in back taxes after EU antitrust regulators said that its tax deal with Luxembourg was not illegal, citing quirks in the Grand Duchy's bilateral tax treaty with the United States.

The Commission said McDonald's tax deal was in line with national tax laws and the Luxembourg-U.S. double taxation treaty.

    Luxembourg welcomes EU ruling on McDonald's taxes

    Luxembourg welcomed on Wednesday the European Commission's ruling that its tax deal with McDonald's (MCD.N) was not illegal after a three-year long investigation. The Commission said the mismatch between U.S. and Luxembourg tax laws resulted in the U.S. fast food chain not paying any taxes on some profits. "This decision strengthens Luxembourg's position that while the application of the rules in force at the time might have resulted in a situation that no longer reflects the current spirit of the national and international tax framework, such an application does not constitute state aid," Luxembourg Finance Minister Pierre Gramegna said in a statement.

    EU Ends Tax Probe Into McDonald’s With a Rare Reprieve

    McDonald’s Corp. won a rare reprieve from European Union competition regulators cracking down on unfair fiscal deals for multinational firms.
