Jan 28, 2019

Taoiseach Leo Varadkar and the Minister for Finance recently attended the Annual World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland and defended Ireland’s low-tax regime and Apple case. 

The Irish Government also repeated its position that a digital tax should be levied on profits, not sales, and be implemented at international level rather that by the EU, according to the Irish Times. Minister Donohoe took part in a high-level panel discussion on international tax issues alongside the OECD Secretary General, Angel Gurría.
