Google is to pay French authorities almost €1bn (£900m) to end a long-running investigation into its taxes.
It rounds off a four year investigation that saw authorities raid Google’s Paris headquarters in 2016.
French authorities had been seeking to establish whether Google, which has its European headquarters in Dublin, failed to declare some of its activities in the country.
The agreement allows Google “to settle once for all these past disputes,” said Antonin Levy, one of the firm’s lawyers.
In March, the EU hit Google with a €1.5bn fine for blocking rival online search advertisers and last year the European Commission levelled a record €4.3bn fineagainst the firm over its Android mobile operating system.
