Written answers (Question to Finance)

I am advised by the Revenue Commissioners that the criteria for entry into their Large Cases Division is applied on a group rather than a company basis. For a group to be managed in the Large Cases Division, group turnover must be in excess of €162 million or group tax payments (all taxes) must be in excess of €16 million in a year. In addition, certain sectors such as pensions and banking are managed in their entirety by this Division. I am also advised by the Revenue Commissioners that for reasons of taxpayer confidentiality they are not in a position to provide the names of individual companies managed by Revenue’s Large Cases Division.
