Google wins case against French authorities

Google will not have to pay €1.1 billion in back taxes, after the technology company won a legal case brought by the French authorities. 
A court in Paris ruled that the internet search firm's Irish subsidiary was not liable for tax in France.
Google employs 700 people in France, but advertising contracts sold for display in France are booked through its subsidiary in low-tax Ireland.       
In 2015, the company paid just €6.7 million in corporate taxes in France.
