The gesture that makes me say all this is the move of the international business headquarters of iTunes to Cork , where Apple already has the offices that manage the European operations. Up to now and since 2004, this office has been present in Luxembourg. The move will take effect on 5 February.
Of course, the move is made because of the tax advantages that having that branch of Apple working from Irish soil will entail. And all of you who have content for sale in an iTunes catalogue don’t have to do anything, as of last September all the income you make should be coming from Apple Distribution International. That is, Ireland.
The international headquarters of iTunes handles the business of this division of Apple in over one hundred countries , none of which is the United States. And now that Apple’s services are making a profit and becoming another major pillar of the company, the Cork offices will be much more valuable.
