Tim Cook soon heard by the Senate on tax optimization

Tim Cook, will have to explain to a Senate committee in the United States, about Apple's tax optimization practices. The CEO will probably defend by saying that his company paid a large sum of taxes in his country without forgetting the creation of thousands of jobs.

The United States is very interested in tax optimization, which refers to the legal means used by companies to evade tax. Thus, the U.S. Senate has set up a sub-committee of inquiry to try to see more clearly. She will hear the CEO of Apple next Tuesday.

Tim Cook will notably have to explain how the company maintains its 100 billion war chest outside the territory (in offshore funds) and therefore not taxable in the United States. The Apple spokesman Steve Dowling, has championed the cause of the brand, announcing that Tim Cook will probably say to the senators: "Apple is one of the largest U.S. taxpayers, and has met six billion in federal taxes in 2012. We also help in the creation of hundreds of thousands of jobs in the U.S. in maintaining our research and development in California and creating iconic products like the iPhone, the iPad or the App Store, which has generated billions of dollars in profits for our developers. "

Tim Cook even said in an interview with Politico that he hoped to "provide some clear recommendations" in the Senate: "I ​​think there will be receptive ears," he added.

Other computer giants such as HP and Microsoft have been heard before the Senate in September.
