Europe’s top court on Thursday sided with Amazon in a case in which the U.S. e-commerce giant was accused by the European Commission of illegal tax benefits.
The European Court of Justice (ECJ) said that the Commission, the EU’s executive arm, had “not established” that a tax agreement between Amazon and Luxembourg was “a state aid that was incompatible with the internal market.”
“We welcome the Court’s ruling, which confirms that Amazon followed all applicable laws and received no special treatment,” Amazon said in a statement on Thursday.
