U.S. Companies (see article below)

Hi,
 
Per the article below, several US large companies are re-incorporating
themselves overseas, including the county of Ireland. It's an interesting
article worth reading (see link at the bottom of this email). Here is Gerry
Hanley's response to my question on why Ireland is amongst the countries being
selected.
 
Thanks, Jim

for a number of reasons:


 
1. we have a 12.5% Corporation Tax rate


2. we are English speaking and an ideal entry point to the EU


3. The IFSC (International Financial Services Centre) was established by
Government in Dublin 20 years ago to attract such business.


4. we have highly qualified young people and services here to support it.


5. our office rents are much lower than London and it is only an hour's
commute


6. our Recovery is well underway and we are seen as a 'safe' place to do
business

Why do you suppose that so many companies are choosing Ireland? Are your
income taxes lower than ours?

Companies are re-incorporating themselves from the US to tax haven
countries. Here is a short list of ones you or yours should never, ever do any
business with. They should be blacklisted everywhere.
