Well . That's the truth . It has 'Non-Profit' status because IKEA is registered as a non-profit that is dedicated to furthering the advancement of architecture and interior design--a cause they give a pittance of $2 million or so to a year.
Did I forget to tell that out of $28 Billion dollar they earn every year , they pay a measly 3.5 % against 18 % which they are supposed to pay, because of this 'non-profit' status.
