Quote:
shock to the State’s corporation tax base, which generated a record €8 billion last year, is more or less inevitable, economist Seamus Coffey has warned.

He said receipts from the business tax were likely to fall at some point in the future because they were “inherently” volatile and highly concentrated around a small number of firms.

Ireland is the world’s biggest corporate ‘tax haven’, say academics

https://www.irishtimes.com/business/eco ... -1.3528401

Quote:
Ireland is the biggest “tax haven” in the world used by multinationals to shelter profits, according to a new study by economists from the United States and Denmark.

The research from academics at the University California, Berkeley and the University of Copenhagen estimates that foreign multinationals shifted $106 billion (€90 billion) of corporate profits to Ireland in 2015.

This was more than all of the islands of the Caribbean combined ($97 billion/€83 billion), and well ahead of Singapore ($70 billion/€60 billion), Switzerland ($58 billion/€49 billion) and the Netherlands ($57 billion/€48 billion), according to the researchers.

Dublin-based tech firm relocates to US due to Trump’s ‘favourable’ tax changes

https://www.irishtimes.com/business/tec ... -1.3612765

Quote:
Afilias, a Dublin-headquartered company that manages hundreds of millions of internet addresses, is to relocate to Pennsylvania due to “favourable” tax changes recently introduced by US president Donald Trump.

He signed the overhaul of the US tax regime into law on December 22nd, cutting the corporate tax rate from 35 per ent to 21 per cent.

Earlier this year it was reported that Apple was pulling back on its investments in the corporate bond market as it prepares to repatriate billions of dollars in overseas cash under the Trump tax cuts. However, Afilias, is the first known company headquartered in Ireland to relocate on the back of the tax changes.
