Сенсация: Apple paid zero tax to the NZ Government in the past 10 years in a period when its sales in this country totalled $4.2 billion. But local taxes matter. Roads matter. Schools matter. Housing authorities matter. Health care matters. Regulation enforcement matters (!!!) All of the things that support civil society matter. Apple's profits are made possible by that civil society, and the company should contribute its fair share.
Википедия: Goods and services tax (GST) is an indirect tax introduced in New Zealand in 1986. This represented a major change in New Zealand taxation policy as until this point almost all revenue had been raised via direct taxes. GST makes up 24% of the New Zealand Government's core revenue as of 2013. Most products or services sold in New Zealand incur GST at a rate of 15%.
