Monday November 5th, 2012
Apple paid less than 2% corporation tax on its profits outside the US, its filing with US regulators has shown.
The company paid $713m (£445m) in the year to 29 September on foreign pre-tax profits of $36.8bn, a rate of 1.9%.
It is the latest company to be identified as paying low rates of overseas tax, following Starbucks, Facebook and Google in recent weeks.
