    Default Cameron and Merkel want more taxes from multinationals

    According to the Guardian, despite their disagreements on the EU budget, both agree that multinationals are not paying enough tax and they will be raising this issue at the G20.

    UK and Germany agree tax crackdown on multinational companies | Business | guardian.co.uk

    I guess this makes it look unlikely that Northern Ireland will take control of its corporation tax rate, it also doesn't necessarily look good for Ireland's multinational exporting sector.

    Well TBH with you they haven't been being paying that much tax. We should crackdown on them also.

    Let them punish multinationals in their own countries. More power to us.

    Irrelevant as the tax from those workers is a drop in the ocean compared to the tax that Google is NOT paying.
    If you continue to elect idiots in elections, don't be surprised when the result is an idiotic government.

    But isn't that because of the highly educated workforce available here?

    Would you prefer they NOT pay it somewhere else?

    The politician who gives even an inch on Ireland's right to choose its own corporation tax should be waterboarded. It about the only thing we have going for us.

    So any company that employs people should be allowed to pay zero tax in Ireland?
