Ireland Expected To Sign Up To Global Corporation Tax Rate

It's expected Cabinet Ministers will agree to sign up to a minimum 15 per cent Corporation Tax rate at a meeting this evening.

Finance Minister Paschal Donohoe will present the revised text of an OECD agreement for a global minimum rate.
OECD countries are attempting to agree a global minimum rate of 15 per cent, and other changes that would impact where big companies pay most of their tax. The removal of the phrase 'at least 15 per cent' has been key to Ireland signing up, and Department of Finance sources said last night most of the issues the Government had are bedded down.
It's hoped a final deal can be reached by the 140 countries involved in these talks on Friday, with Ireland one of the last hold-outs.
However, work on issues raised by other countries was continuing late last night. Finance Minister Paschal Donohoe will bring proposals to Cabinet at 4 o'clock, with a press conference due after.
He's previously said the changes in this deal could see Ireland lose more than 2 billion euro a year in Corporate Tax take, which would be equivalent to a fifth of the State's annual corporation tax receipts.
