    The Paris administrative court ruled that Google Ireland Limited was not subject to corporate and value-added taxes for the period 2005-2010, striking down the tax administration’s demands for back payments.

The ruling in favor of Google, now part of Alphabet Inc (GOOGL.O), followed a court adviser’s recommendation that Google did not have a “permanent establishment” or sufficient taxable presence to justify the bill.
In a statement, the French finance ministry said it was considering an appeal, which must be lodged within two months.
