Tax breakfast briefing 2 December 2014

Moving forward

At our Tax event we discussed all aspects of the Finance Bill, including Committee Stage amendments, and its impact on businesses and individuals in Ireland with a specific focus on pre-year end planning opportunities.

Patrick Lenain, Senior Economist, OECD spoke during the event. The OECD released its new economic forecast on 25 November (including the outlook for Ireland) and Mr. Lenain gave his perspectives on the Irish economy.

We also commented on recent international tax developments (including EU developments on Patent Box regimes relevant to the Knowledge Development Box regime announced by the Government in the Budget) and provided our perspectives on Ireland’s place in the international tax landscape of the future.

This event has been accredited for CPD hours with CPA Ireland, the Irish Tax Institute and may count as CPD points with Chartered Accountants Ireland if relevant to your role. Please contact organisations directly regarding CPD.
