Shannon Chamber to Open Discussion on Ireland’s International Tax Regime

With Ireland’s international tax regime and multinational companies’ tax liabilities very much under scrutiny, and the coming years set to be a period of uncertainty and change across the world, Shannon Chamber has invited its corporate sponsor Grant Thornton to put the entire debate in context at a breakfast seminar on Thursday, 20 November in Westpark Business Campus, Shannon.

GT Int Tax photo_edited-2The seminar, which commences at 7.45am, will involve Grant Thornton’s tax director Eamonn Murphy explaining the fundamentals at play and how Ireland has positioned itself to compete on the world stage.  He will be joined by Hussein Casey, a recent addition to Grant Thornton’s Limerick team, who has extensive transfer pricing experience and knowledge.

Topics for discussion include: corporate residence (including the Finance Bill 2014 changes), attribution of profit to permanent establishments, transfer pricing issues, double taxation and treaty reliefs (including Limitation of Benefits and ‘Treaty Shopping’), thin capitalization, tax competition and tax havens, Controlled Foreign Corporations (CFCs), hybrid mis-matches (e.g. the ‘Double Irish’), the Irish income tax regime for inbound executives, and the Base Erosion and Profit Shifting (BEPS) project.

Announcing this link-up with Grant Thornton, Shannon Chamber’s chief executive Helen Downes said: “The seminar will be of interest to anyone working in a multi-jurisdictional environment or anyone who wants to understand and engage in the debate, as it assumes no prior knowledge of the area. It will initiate very insightful discussion.”
