Ibec meets Minister Donohoe on Budget 2020

An Ibec delegation met Minister for Finance and Public Expenditure and Reform Paschal Donohoe and a team of officials from his Department to formally present the Ibec budget submission, as part of our lobbying campaign in the run-up to Budget 2020.

The Ibec submission seeks to address three key challenges: risks to our FDI model arising from the OECD’s Base Erosion and Profit Sharing (BEPS); the slowdown in the global trading environment; and of course the irrevocable change in Ireland’s relationship with the UK.

 


Global tax expert briefs Ibec on OECD reform process

Ireland has been one of the biggest beneficiaries of the BEPS 1 process at the OECD, whose impact is being felt currently in surging corporation tax receipts. The BEPS 2 process underway, however, has the potential to offer both significant threats and opportunities to Ireland’s business model.
