A future tax strategy to grow Irish indigenous exports


Our new 140-page report ‘A future tax strategy to grow Irish indigenous exports analyses the global opportunities and challenges for the Irish indigenous sector and the relevant mismatches in tax policies that are hindering efforts to grasp global trade opportunities and meet the challenges Ireland faces.

The Irish Tax Institute believes a sharply focused tax strategy for Irish indigenous businesses is now needed if the ambitions to put “resilience” into the Irish economy” and grow exports are to be met.

The report is set against the backdrop of a series of warnings on external risks from the IMF, the European Commission, the ESRI and the Department of Finance. Amongst them, our high level of dependency on the UK and US markets and our high level of dependency on multinationals.

In its report the Irish Tax Institute outlines the major factors that will help create the step change in Ireland’s export strategy and the respective tax challenges that hindering progress, including 20 key tax recommendations in Chapter 11.
