The Post Podcast: Episode 29

The long anticipated digital tax proposals from Brussels would require digital businesses to pay tax on profits generated in states where they have a significant digital presence, even if they are not physically located there. The move would have massive consequences for Ireland, with the Revenue Commissioners estimating that Ireland would be worst impacted by the proposal. Jack Horgan-Jones and Ian Kehoe discuss the issue and its potential impact in a special edition of the Post Podcast.
