Ireland Not A Tax Haven, Says OECD Head

by Jason Gorringe, Tax-News.com, London

23 September 2013


The secretary-general of the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development, Dr Angel Gurria, has said that Ireland is not a tax haven and has never been one.

Dr Gurria was responding to an announcement made in Brussels that investigations into the tax systems of Ireland, the Netherlands and Luxembourg are to be carried out at the request of the European Union.

Frank Barry, professor of international business and development at Trinity College Dublin, also declared recently that Ireland is not a tax haven during a speech to the Joint Oireachtas Subcommittee on Global Taxation.

Ireland agreed with plans discussed in the June G8 Summit in Co Fermanagh regarding cracking down on international tax evasion.

To date, the country has entered 69 bilateral double taxation agreements.
