The data retrieved from the Paris raid on Google’s headquarters by French police could take months or even years to analyze, according to a prosecutor assigned to the case.

Authorities seized dozens of files and related data that recorded Google’s financial transactions in the country with a view to lodging a claim for unpaid taxes by the Internet search giant. Although Google has denied any wrongdoing, it must complete all of its sales contracts in Ireland, where it is incorporated.

If French authorities sifting through the documents seized in the raids discover that any of its French sales transactions were completed locally, it could be subject to further action, including fines.
