Northern Ireland needs 12.5% tax says media chief

Dublin-based media mogul Gavin O'Reilly said such a move would see Northern Ireland enjoying the same prosperity as their Republic of Ireland neighbours

Slashing Northern Ireland’s corporation tax to 12.5% could revive the
foundering economy according to Gavin O’Reilly, chief executive of Independent
News & Media.

The Dublin- based media mogul said such a move would bring Northern Ireland
into line with the Republic of Ireland, which is
a
popular destination for multinational companies.

O’Reilly said: “Don’t be fooled by anyone who tells you that the 12.5% rate
was not really all that important for the Republic’s success.

“It was the indispensable ace in the pack,” the Belfast Telegraph reported.
