Ireland: ready to talk about tax reform

Ireland may finally join global tax reform plans. Several government officials in Dublin stressed that the texts updated by the organization of industrialized nations OECD on the subject would address many of Ireland’s concerns. However, further discussions are still needed. European Economic Commissioner Paolo Gentiloni said Tuesday morning in Luxembourg that the project was moving forward. It is expected that the final green light for the project will be given in October at the international level. Then important details should also be clarified after the approval of the basic framework during the summer. In the EU, apart from Ireland, Hungary and Estonia are also skeptical. Gentiloni said it was on the move. Countries should comment on this themselves.

Under the aegis of the OECD, nearly 140 countries are fighting for tax reform with two pillars – a global minimum tax and a new form of taxation for digital services.
