  • Eire to block ‘double Irish’ loophole


    Paul Smith, partner at Blick Rothenberg, comments on the abolition of the ‘double Irish’, as announced in the Irish Budget.

    He comments "The increase in a company’s tax bill could see large multinational corporations moving their operations to other countries such as the UK, where the tax rate will be at 20% from April 2015. This will make the UK slightly more competitive in relation to Ireland and, with only 7.5% difference in corporate tax combined with other benefits that the country may offer, multinational groups may see Britain as a better jumping-off point to trade in Europe."

  • Calls for review of HMRC systems after 100,000 hit by tax errors

  • Tight timetable for Scottish tax reforms, warn experts


    Speaking about the potential impact of Scottish independence on VAT, Paul Smith, partner at Blick Rothenberg comments; "Some tax areas are out of reach, such as VAT. ‘I don’t think that VAT would be in the scope of the devolution powers. They cannot do much about VAT as it is pretty much a European tax.

    ‘Zero rating is agreed at European level so the UK government could not change that for Scotland. But they might be able to look at the VAT proceeds from Scottish sales and whether that could be shared with Scotland.

    'Another area they could look at is air passenger duty - that could be devolved as it is not EU controlled,' he added.

    He also comments on concerns around the new income tax structure; ‘There are practical difficulties with the SRIT – they will need to decide whether this applies to residence or place of work, for example if you live in England and work in Scotland, and vice versa. Will your tax status be defined by where you work or where you live? This is unclear even now. If it went by reference to the work place, it would be easier to administer,’
