Hunter Savage attends the Irish Tax Institute Annual Dinner
On Friday evening, our Associate Director, Cailim Boyle and Managing Consultant, Steven Osborne was delighted to attend the Irish Tax Institute Annual Dinner in Dublin as guests of Mulvaney Corporate Services.
This well-connected event was attended by over 1,000 people including members along with guests from Government departments, Revenue, State bodies, academia, and the media. Guest of honour on the night was Minister for Finance, Michael McGrath T.D. who addressed the large gathering on a range of issues including international corporation tax reform and the role that taxation can play as a climate action lever.
Also addressing the audience on the night was President of the Irish Tax Institute, Colm Browne who warned that the complexity of business taxes is damaging Ireland’s reputation as an easy location for doing business. The President called on the Government to announce its intention to move to a territorial system of taxation in this year’s Finance Bill.
In his address, Colm Browne, a Tax Director with PWC and leader of the firm’s Centralised Corporation Tax Compliance function, told guests: “The Corporation Tax Return now runs to 56 pages – it was 8 pages in 2001. And the same form applies whether you are a small domestic business or a large multinational.”
Steven Osborne, Managing Consultant for Accountancy & Finance at Hunter Savage said, “The event was a great way to connect with current clients and candidates and make new connections. It was also interesting to hear the discussion on the challenges faced across the industry and positive to listen to the strong voice of the Tax Institute in representing the people and businesses across Ireland”.
