Speaking today Neasa Hourigan, Finance Spokesperson for the Green Party, expressed disappointment at the impacts of the European court ruling that Ireland did not give Apple illegal state aid.
Deputy Hourigan, TD for Dublin Central said:
I feel it is vital that we ensure that large multinational companies pay a fair amount of tax. While I need to study the finding in detail this ruling seems like a setback for the EU commission and the move towards tax reform.
Ireland needs to be a leader in supporting greater transparency and accountability in our tax system. Ireland also needs to champion global tax justices both internationally and within the European Union with, for example, measures like Country by Country Reporting.
Tax justice demands that every company small or large, pay their fair share.
