Bangalore: Cupertino Giant’s CEO Timothy Cook was in front of the Senate panel on Tuesday clearing every situation regarding Apple. But there are some loop holes and Apple’s tax strategy goes according to it. To know how it all works out, we have gathered some strategies that Apple has of its own to understand the tech firm from the outside.

Let us take a look at what they are as compiled by Huffington Post.
