UK Businesses in mass complaint of Illegal State Aid to foreign IT Corporations


Following the Illegal State Aid EU ruling into the Apple / Ireland arrangement hundreds of small UK Businesses, tired of playing second fiddle to large foreign IT Corporations  have been complaining en masse that Tier2 visas, ICT visas and special foreign company tax arrangements also amount to illegal state aid.

“If Apple’s arrangements with Ireland amounted to illegal state aid, then we have to ask if the UK and Scottish Governments have been providing illegal state aid to the large IT corporations – including CGI and Spectromax who have both made a fortune out of the ill fated Cap System for processing rural payments. There have been complaints that they sacked UK workers in favour of cheaper foreign workers who are reported to pay zero or considerably reduced taxes compared to their UK counterparts due to incentivised tax arrangements.” One small business complained.
