McDonald's buys itself free: the fast-food chain pays a fine of 1.25 billion euros in France

A hefty bill that McDonald's collects in France: The US fast food chain has to pay 1.25 billion euros to avoid being prosecuted. It's tax fraud. The investigations against the US group would now be discontinued, said the public prosecutor in Paris.

It has been proven to the French judiciary that McDonald's artificially depressed its profits in the country through royalties to its European parent company in Luxembourg.

In early 2016, the Public Prosecutor's Office launched preliminary investigations after union representatives filed a lawsuit against McDonald's France for organized tax fraud. According to the information at the time, it was about an annual amount of 75 million euros.
