This indicates the sales recorded by its operations in Hollyhill Industrial Estate, Cork, are in the region of $137.9 billion (€119.2 billion) per year.
"US multinational firms are the global grandmasters of tax avoidance schemes that deplete not just USA tax collection but the tax collection of most every large economy in the world", former corporate tax adviser Edward Kleinbard was quoted as saying by the NYT.
Much of that profit was transferred as dividends to Apple Operations International.
With help from lawyers including Applebys, Apple reportedly started channelling its profits through the offshore tax haven of Jersey after Ireland started to clamp down on the amount of tax Apple was paying there.
Until 2013 Apple had funneled earnings from outside of the Americas through Ireland, which enabled the company to pay as little as 2% in corporation tax.
According to the August 2016 decision issued by the EU, Apple met with the European Commission in 2015 to explain its new corporate structure as well as submitting a summary with the key elements as a follow-up.
The regulators ordered Apple to pay Ireland an extra €13 billion in tax, both Apple and Ireland are appealing this.
Prior to 2014, Apple had taken advantage of tax rules to route overseas revenue through Irish subsidiaries to minimize taxes.
According to the reports, legal advisory firm Appleby, which was a subject of the Paradise Papers data hack, advised Apple to move the companies to Jersey.
Apple claims that it has paid its fair share of tax and that it hasn't broken any laws. That maneuver lets the companies avoid paying hefty taxes they could face by bringing the cash back to the US.
This confirms that Apple's non-US sales continue to flow through Ireland after its 2015-restructuring.
The moves came after a U.S. Senate subcommittee found in 2013 that Apple had avoided tens of billions of dollars in taxes by using overseas havens.
The world's most valuable company noted that it has earmarked $36 billion to cover deferred US taxes.
Then-finance minister Michael Noonan said the reform was necessary because the tax loophole had "caused Ireland great reputational damage" and "the solution was in our hands". Up to then, only 80 per cent of each year's profits could be sheltered from tax in this way.
Apple didn't immediately comment to The Associated Press. You shifted it to three companies that do not pay taxes in Ireland. The latest figures released by the U.S. multinational show that, as of earlier this year, 64 per cent of its global sales are outside the US.
Apple isn't the only global tech firm to run worldwide operations out of Ireland.
An investigation by the European Commission concluded the rate of tax for one of Apple's Irish companies for one year had been just 0.005%.
Apple, and the Government, are contesting the finding.
