  • Financial Transaction Tax: Myths deconstructed » News » Latest Events » Claiming our Future
    the next election if pressure for this tax is sustained David Hillman started with a revelation There is already a limited form of tax on shares in Ireland Stamp Duty Tax In 2007 the Government introduced an exemption for intermediaries a market makers relief This exemption has contributed to a reduction from 600 million Euro to 170 million Euro in the take from this tax The recession accounts for some but not all of this It is incredible that not only do we fail to introduce the tax but at the same time we actually reduce the contribution of the financial services sector The first myth to go was that a Financial Transactions Tax is merely a revenue raiser for the EU The source of this myth is a Department of Finance briefing paper from 2012 that states that two thirds of the revenue from the tax will go to the EU It concluded that there was therefore little to be gained from the tax This is not true the full revenue from the tax will accrue to the Irish Government It would appear that the Department has failed to issue any correction to this briefing Another Department of Finance position is that a Financial Transactions Tax would increase the cost of our debt Other highly indebted countries are committed to introducing the tax such as Greece Italy and Spain Bonds are not on the table at the moment in the enhanced cooperation procedure and they are unlikely to be given the countries involved Another myth bites the dust Job losses and relocation of business was the big one It was pointed out that this is a low tax and would form a small percentage of the charges already applied to financial transactions This could only be an insignificant push

    secrecy that can surround companies and trusts Anonymous companies and trusts can be used as tools for concealing funds and keeping them away from the eyes of authorities and can thus avoid paying tax on enormous profits These companies and trusts are primarily used by the rich and transnational corporations We have been calling on the Minister for Finance Michael Noonan to establish a fully public register of the real owners of companies for some time This means that those owners who ultimately benefit from the profits of companies trusts and foundations known as the beneficial or real owners would have to be known and that information would be freely available to the public You can read more about it here In early October the European Parliament Commission and EU member states began negotiations to finally agree on the details of a Europe wide anti money laundering directive which includes the negotiations on a public register If agreed this could curb these dodgy financial practices These meetings should conclude in December this year But what is happening now In the current negotiations on beneficial ownership of companies the Irish government s position has been to support the idea that the owners of companies should be known but it has not stated whether it will set up a publicly available centralised register in Ireland Nor has it stated whether both companies and trusts would be covered by such a register DDCI believes that people in Ireland have a right to know who the real owners of companies registered in Ireland are and who is benefiting from Ireland s generous tax regime Over the next number of weeks a decision may be made on public registers as part of these discussions We urge the government not to waste this chance but rather
