Expertise

We are committed to actively engaging in the development of international and Irish tax policy.  We are the only Irish law firm that consistently participates in tax policy consultations, both internationally and in Ireland.

We believe it is essential that government tax proposals are carefully drafted and tested before implementation and necessary comments and observations are provided.  Accordingly, we participate in Irish tax policy development and contribute to public consultations launched by the Irish Department of Finance on Irish tax matters.

Our partners are members of the tax committees of various industry bodies, including the American Chamber of Commerce Ireland, the Irish Funds Industry Association and the Irish Debt Securities Association.

Irish Department of Finance consultations

Ireland is committed to maintaining a competitive taxation system to attract new business to Ireland.  Matheson’s primary focus is on serving the Irish legal and tax needs of international companies and financial institutions doing business in Ireland.  As the leading law firm tax practice in Ireland, we commit ourselves to review and provide commentary on Irish government proposals relating to taxation.  Each year, we make a written technical submission regarding the annual update of Ireland’s tax legislation (the Finance Act).  We also engage in consultations of the Irish government relating to taxation.
