The French government said it plans to lodge an appeal against a French court ruling that Google is not liable to pay 1.1 billion euros ($1.3 billion) in back taxes.

The ruling in favour of Google, now part of Alphabet Inc, followed a court adviser's recommendation that Google did not have a "permanent establishment" or sufficient taxable presence to justify the bill.
