Q: Yet despite all that money sloshing around, the subsidiary is allowed to claim itself as a non-taxing resident of Ireland.

Q. Does it mean that the subsidiary regards itself as a non-taxing resident or the subsidiary has been granted "the status" by the Irish government so what the company itself believes is that it didn't do any wrong doing? Btw the sentence above is from a news report about Apple being accused of getting a preferential treatment from the Irish government.
A: This has been going on for many years. Notice that it is Ireland in fact who are being accused and not just Apple. This is because the EU (and the US) believe that Ireland benefits from Apple's presence in the country (jobs, tax, etc.) and therefore allows them to not pay the 12.5% tax.

If it were not for this preferential treatment, Apple would not channel such a high percentage of its profits into Ireland (where they're not taxed) and instead would send the money to other countries of the EU or the US and pay tax there.
Q: Those weren't my money. Does this sound natural?
