19/11/2012: Links on Irish Corporate Tax Haven


Due to page loading restriction on post links, I am moving this list to a new location.

Here is the original page with a number of links on the topic of Ireland as a Corporate Tax Haven. And here's a link to the Irish Government 'defense' of the same.

Updated 19/11/2012: And a new article on US Multinationals facing tax demands / pressures in Europe with explicit referencing of Ireland: http://www.nytimes.com/2012/11/19/technology/19iht-tax19.html

Updated 20/11/2012: No country named, but you know who they are talking about here: http://www.ft.com/intl/cms/s/0/798f30d2-3242-11e2-916a-00144feabdc0.html#axzz2CaviTlTt

Updated 9/12/2012: And more on Google using Ireland as a conduit for tax minimization: http://www.independent.ie/business/irish/google-pays-just-014-tax-in-seven-years-3319796.html
The core problem highlighted here is not the headline 0.14% tax rate, but €47 billion worth of revenues booked via Ireland - an exemplification of Ireland's beggar-thy-neighbor economic policies.

Updated 20/12/2012: Here's The Economist article on Starbucks UK case, mentioning Google use of Irish tax system: http://www.economist.com/news/business/21568432-starbuckss-tax-troubles-are-sign-things-come-multinationals-wake-up-and-smell?fsrc=scn/tw/te/tr/wakeupandsmellthecoffee
