The new government’s first budget is likely to be published on 11 October 2016. With uncertainty over the impact of Brexit, it’s unclear which taxpayers, if any, will benefit from the Budget provisions.  The Apple verdict will increase the focus on any FDI related measures, with keen interest too in expected measures concerning the taxation of property related debt, in particular where held within SPVs.

With Grant Thornton, we invite you to join us the following morning when newly appointed Tax Director, Billy McMahon, Grant Thornton will address the effects the budget will have on you and your business, while our guest speaker Dr. Stephen Kinsella,  Senior Lecturer in Economics at the University of Limerick will present an overview of the impact on the wider economy.
