Irish MPs vote not to grill Apple and Google

printer Mail

As reported in The Guardian, Irish MPs have voted that multinational companies, such as Apple and Google, which use the Irish tax regime will not be grilled on their tax affairs. Instead, companies will face a ‘watered-down inquiry’ addressing Irish engagement with the global tax system, looking at ‘global taxation and how Ireland engages with the global tax architecture’. It will call on evidence from revenue commissioners, finance ministry officials, the OECD and other experts, although no company executive will face questioning.
